March 28, 2016. Letter to the Enquirer.
Please help us save the last wild green space in Springfield Township. Trustees have a shortsighted plan to destroy Warder Park’s biodiversity on its more than 40 acres. They have obtained the services of a major development company. The developer and trustees are enamored with the trendy concept of mixed-use development that would annihilate the green space and animal habitat.
Come experience Warder’s magic. You’ll see ponds full of small golden fish right out of a fairy tale. You’ll have the visceral thrill of seeing great blue herons, red fox, barred owls, snapping turtles, frogs and huge toads, white-tailed deer, geese and ducks, Cooper’s hawks and old oaks on lush green space.
