Thank you Kaye for forwarding the current edition of the County Parks and Rec Newsletter to our members. The more folks that know what Parks and Rec are doing the more interest we will have in our natural areas. It is really important for horsemen and women to
continue to advocate for trails as we are often right there behind motorized vehicles in
being excluded from trail access. As the demographics of our County change with new
residents, the majority needs change. Many do not like to deal with manure on the trails even though it is completely biodegradable and natural. This was a part of the ALPS
discussions when the Three Bridges project was in the planning stages. Jonalee Istenes was and still is our advocate within that organization. We do not want to be excluded. Kathy Redden is a great advocate currently attending all the Parks and Rec meetings so we can stay on top of the latest developments countywide. Either lady may give us a “call to
action”, a political term for “we need to write letters, make phone calls and send reps” to address some issue that may arise. Politics are never fun, but a basic necessity if we wish to retain access to natural areas for riding recreation.
If I can ever get my ankle to heal, I will see you on the trail!
