APPLAUSE: Rally for the Valley draws a crowd

NANAIMO – More than 120people braved chilly weather to show their support for protecting Linley Valley West’s fragile ecosystems.

To the Editor,

Many thanks to the 120-plus people who joined the Rally for the Valley March 24, braving chilly weather to show their support for protecting Linley Valley West’s fragile ecosystems.

It was especially heartening to be joined by many advocates for other at-risk areas in Nanaimo that are important to the lives of residents and creatures who live here.

Save Linley Valley West is committed to continuing to work towards protecting the more than 120 hectares of wetland, woodland and cliffs and ensuring a continuous habitat with the eastern side of Linley Valley, preserved a decade ago by a similar citizen initiative.

Thanks are also due to members of the media who continue to inform Nanaimo about Linley West and its potential for our city.
