Please Donate to Help to Protect one of Indiana’s greatest resources: White’s Woods Nature Center (WWNC)
Friends of White’s Woods (FWW) needs your help to cover legal representation (estimated >$20,000) to ensure that WWNC is managed and maintained for recreation, conservation, and historical preservation – the purposes of its acquisition under Project 70 funding.
This is the third time White Township Supervisors have sought to timber WWNC (previously in 1995 and 2008) without public input. As in the past, FWW and the community are needed to intervene to ensure public participation and to protect WWNC. Legal representation was necessary in 2008 to require the Township to comply with PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) regulations. The current, in-progress plans provided to FWW currently proposes extraction of timber volumes equal to or in excess of the rejected 2008 plan. White Township’s plan to mitigate invasive species was reviewed by independent forestry and biology experts and found to be flawed as well as ineffective. YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT (tax deductible donation) is CRITICAL. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
