I will begin with some personal history. In the midst of graduate studies in the late 1960s, I learned the Army Corps of Engineers was planning a dam and reservoir that would flood a local park, one of the few remaining places of nature relatively untouched by humans in the endless central Illinois corn and soybean fields. I had grown up visiting this park from my nearby small hometown, and I had developed an attachment to it.
