Re: SG-W:/ SG-W: First Washtenaw Natural Area Purchased



Outstanding!  Barry, thanks for your volunteer work that was so essential
to creating this nature preserve.  And thanks to the rest of the
volunteers who serve on the County's Natural Areas Technical Committee.
This Natural Area program only works because of the rare souls who combine
the skills to evaluate potential nature areas and the willingness to
contribute to the public good by spending hundreds of hours on this
project.
