Congratulations Barb Spears! 

In the wake of Thanksgiving I find myself reflecting on the things and people that make the world a better place. Barb Spears is one of these women. She is a founding contributor to the MN Women's Woodland Network (MN WWN). She's the dedicated leader of the Twin Cities, MN local chapter of the MN WWN. Barb’s also the driving force behind the program’s current direction. But amazingly all this work helping women woodland owners is only a small glimpse of the amazing professional and volunteer efforts Barb has done for forestry over the years.

Would you stay or would you go?  

There is a group of women in North Central Minnesota, who live "out in the woods" in various rural areas, usually 15 to 30 miles away from pretty much everything, and get together regularly for outdoor activities, friendship, and support.  They had a discussion on the question, "Would I stay or would I go."  What would you do if your partner was no longer with you.  Would you stay up here?  What would convince you to stay?  What would convince you to go?
