More support for Gems

Dear Editor:

I recently attended the film festival on the environment held in the Vail-Eagle Valley, and met the group Hidden Gems and found their work extremely important for all of us to support.

I urge all the county commissioners and congressional representatives to know and understand the work they are doing for all of us, for now and in the future, to have a Wilderness that we can all enjoy. The areas they are attempting to include in the Wilderness area are what makes our valley such an awesome place to live. Biologically they are “gems” because they preserve some of our richest wildlife habitat.

Please think of our legacy to the future and support this proposal.

Phyllis and Frank Dobyns
