Sheridan Lorenz is the founder of Cook's Branch Conservancy, a Pineywoods preserve, restoration project, and educational site near Magnolia, Texas. Here she lays out the multi-year string of fortunate events that saved the red-cockaded woodpeckers there - the decision to stop cutting the older trees, the choice not to develop the land for the Woodlands, the infection of the mature pines with red heart disease, and the identification of the colonies by Texas Parks and Wildlife.
