Don’t deprive public of Wildwood’s magic

This land is so special and lush that it has captured my imagination, heart and inspiration.

To the Editor,

Re: New bid offered for Wildwood, July 28.

I write this letter not as a donor or contributor to the Wildwood cause, but as a community member who discovered its magic by taking first a mushroom-identification workshop and then a wild plant-identification workshop.

This land is so special and lush that it has captured my imagination, heart and inspiration and those of all who attend an event or learning opportunity here.

For the sale of Wildwood to be made against the public’s wishes in such a manner is a shame. We could forever lose this pristine and beautiful learning tool possibly in the future and deprive so many of so much. We need to save Wildwood for the public to enjoy as it was intended.

Re: Forest will be lost with Wildwood sale, Letters, Aug. 4.

This whole foofooraw started by the impending sale of Wildwood by The Land Conservancy because of the amount of properties they had accumulated was causing them some financial difficulties in maintaining all the properties. It was at that point TLC decided to put Wildwood on the market.

My question to them is this: if they could not maintain the properties in their custody then why, at the time of the announcement to sell Wildwood, were they still actively trying to acquire more properties?

I think some sort of investigation is in order.
