    I hope they always continue the print version as it is too very important to have this info in a kid’s hands and for that matter adults as well.

    The Conservationist is a good magazine but not near as good as it used to be say pre-early1980’s. Back then there would oftentimes be multiple pages of letters to the editor in smaller print than they use now. In other words more bang for your buck. Though it is still very informative it is set up to be more grade school now whereas back then it was more intellectual. Every thing seems to be going that way!
