Reflections on Ward Stone
Ward Stone, who served as the state’s wildlife pathologist for over four decades, died this week. Roger Downes of the Sierra Club said, “Ward shone a light on environmental threats long before others could notice them and gave a science-based voice to nature in times of crisis when few other state officials would listen. He always chose to pursue environmental justice first before pointless bureaucracy.” We hear from Lynne Jackson, Judith Enck and Ward. By Mark Dunlea for Hudson Mohawk Magazine.
