Letters of Support

Dozens of “influencer” support letters were submitted to Camden County Open Space in 2014, a sampling of which follows. While CCOS cannot presently consider direct-funding the Whitman Woods Project (only because intended steward North American Land Trust is headquartered outside of Camden County,) the letters’ sentiments resonate today. Each author uniquely sets forth compelling reasons for conserving “Whitman Woods” in perpetuity. Of special note is environmental consultant Joseph Arsenault’s highly illuminating letter.
