In Tune With Nature

Members of the popular Seattle rock bands Pearl Jam - led by Eddie Vedder, above - and Soundgarden sent sweet music to the ears of conservationists Monday when they and their associates donated $400,000 for the purchase and preservation of 220 acres of pristine land in the Cascade Mountain foothills. The gift allowed the Land Conservancy of Seattle and King County, a conservation group, to buy the property from United Cascade Mining. The land, which harbors such wildlife as eagles, mountain lions and elk, is near Hardscrabble Creek, next to the Alpine Lakes Wilderness Area.
