Thank you, Johnson family | Letter

Winterbrook Farm and its elk were recently at risk of being lost to a home development. As a board member of Eastside Audubon and member of its conservation committee, I was concerned. Not only could this purchase affect the lives of these elk, but it would take away a possible corridor from Cedar River to Squak and Cougar mountains for trails for people and protection for other wildlife, such as birds. So, I was ready to get our committee into action. However, I was surprised and pleased to read that the Johnson family cared enough to save these amazing animals and their habitat. A bit belated, and yet I send a big thank you from myself and from Eastside Audubon for your generosity and caring. This is a treasure that has the potential of being shared by generations to come.
