This goes out to all of our sprawl warriors and wetland conservationists

I am trying to help a group of concerned citizens/homeowners in Ray Twp that 
would ultimatlely like to stop a development from occuring. Ray Twp. is a 
rural, farming community in Northern Macomb County. Consumers Power owns 100 
acres of farmland that is currently for sale. An interested developer would 
like to see condo/golf-course built on that land. Currently, some of that 
100 acres is leased and being actively farmed. Additionally, a good portion 
of that acreage is wetlands. The DEQ has visited the property and will have 
a public hearing before ruling on the permit, scheduled for Dec. 21 in Ray 
Twp.

Here's where I need some help. We are looking for a wetland specialist(s) 
that would possibly take an interest in visiting the property in question 
and forseeably testify as to the wetlands importance on the day of the 
public hearing.

Any contact information and/or interest would be greatly appreciated.
