That section has to be edited by one person. I think Todd has something
better in mind. Doug mentioned this email list as a way to accomplish
this, but this list can be messy. Picking through it to find tidbits on
trips can be a headache for people that can't spend time reading all
messages, or when the subject doesn't describe the message content, such as
ones with subjects like "RE: NANFA-- Re: nanfa V1 #1508". You folks that
are responding from the digest list, please try to type in a relevant
subject to help the rest of us know what your message is about.

Anyway, such an Activity* Website could include:
- Links to maps of the location
- Links to the natural history of the location, conservation efforts,
listed species, regulations, etc.
- Contact info for organizers and participants
- Itineraries
- the ability for people to enter their own information pertinent to the
trip-- directions, necessary supplies, cell phone numbers, lodging
questions, species lists/written accounts afterwards, etc.

There would be outside people and groups viewing the site, so let's make it
look good for their sake (and possible input and participation). It should
be in a orderly format that's easy to read and not just a list of comments
like this email list. Maybe this could be accomplished by having a set of
subject topics, and people could input information according to subject.

* I call it an Activity Website instead of Collection Trip Website because
in a huge portion of the US we cannot legally collect fish. Maybe members
would want to use such a site to advertise or organize stream cleanups,
workshops, etc.
