Remember That Time We Saved 34 Acres of Forest?

Yesterday, the Shenendehowa Central School District held a public referendum on whether to sell 34 acres of forest to a developer.  The issue was very contentious and generated a lot of argument and activity.  The Friends of Clifton Park Open Space ran a great campaign to vote “no” and thankfully the proposed sale was rejected by the voters, 5,442 to 2,323.  There is hope after all.

A few weekends ago I took the opportunity to hike through the 34 acres that have generated so much passion and pride.  Below are some of the photos I took.


And it just so happens this is my 200th post!  What a way to celebrate!
