Bibens Ace Hardware Store enters conservation spotlight

The Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar picked a Vermont Hardware Store to promote conservation and control the sea lamprey.

Bibens Ace Hardware in Colchester, Vt., welcomed Salazar to the store, where he spoke about the connection between outdoor recreation, conservation and job creation, according to an article on the Vermont Public Radio website.

"The people who walk in through those doors to buy the fishing gear, the fishing tackle, they are investing in job creation here in America," Salazar said.
