Join us as we host a human trafficking documentary: In Plain Sight.

Envisioned and developed by Awaken Media, IN PLAIN SIGHT seeks to raise awareness of the thousands of women and children who are forced, coerced, or deceived into the commercial sex trade each year in the United States. Through the mediums of a documentary film, study guide, and accompanying benefit music album, we open the eyes of the average American to what’s happening “in plain sight” – the exploitation of thousands of people in their own communities without them even being aware.​

We're having a work day at Dobbs landing this Saturday (11/14) from 1-4 PM. We're going to try to finish preparing the fire breaks in the oxbow area and burn the remaining brush piles in that area from the work day earlier this year. We also need to clean up the fire break along the property boundary to make sure it's completely on the Dobbs property (the areas circled in yellow). If we have a large turnout, some folks can split off and go work on the burn breaks on the western side of the property or tackle more of the buckthorn in the floodplain forest.

Build New Habits
8 Ways to Build New Habits
  1. Differentiate between goals and habits - Goals are outcomes, such as ‘getting healthy’ whereas habits are the actions you take to achieve a goal.
  2. Start with small changes - Make incremental changes toward the behavior you want, and work your way up from there.
  3. Update your environment - Make changes that encourage your new habit and discourage unwanted habits.
  4. Tie new habits to other activities - Make a plan using the format: “After , I will .” For example: “After each meal, I will read for 5 minutes.”
  5. Some practice is better than no practice - Even if you don’t have a lot of time or energy, do something toward building your habit.
  6. Tell someone you’re starting a new habit - Doing so creates accountability and makes it more difficult to back out of your commitment.
  7. Track your habit - Keep a journal, calendar, or spreadsheet to record your habit each time you practice. It can be satisfying to record your behavior, and to look back and see all the hard work you’ve put in.
  8. Celebrate your success - Healthy habits tend to have long-term benefits that take time to kick in. While you’re waiting for these, give yourself immediate, small rewards to sustain motivation.
