As caretaker of our Wildwood nature preserve, Director of Land Management, Casey Jones, almost always starts his days on the road for ACRES. Protecting land and serving 32 counties requires a lot of travel. His direction changed this morning and he shares this snapshot:

“For as long as I can remember, it seems that I’ve always traveled east to get to work. So, whenever I’m able to travel west in the morning, it’s a very welcome change. It’s also kind of rare since I’m already towards the west end of our service area in Kosciusko County.

“This morning, on my trip to Miami County for work on the Eel River, it was much more pleasant to see the rising sun in the rear-view mirror rather than squinting just to be able to see the road in front of me.”
