In this issue, we explore the resurgence of the native Ohio brook trout population. Once thought to be extinct, this fish’s future hinges on the meticulous and largely unseen work of naturalists and biologists who are committed to its protection. We all have the potential to create ripples of impact that are enduring—sometimes with grand gestures and, at other times, through small, quiet sacrifices. We hope that the stories in this issue remind you that actions matter and that we all have the capacity to ignite change.
