From middens to forest

middenEarly inhabitants of the Pacific coast, dating back  six thousand years until only a couple of hundred years ago,  ate a lot of clams. They left behind big piles of empty shells, called middens. it has been discovered that these middens are leading to the trees growing in their midst to be fuller, taller, and healthier than their other forest neighbours.

This is one human ecological footprint of good effect.
