Preserve it for nature

Dear Editor:Re: “A new neighbor for North Star?”, April 17Bob Lewis was my friend for over 30 years. We would sit on his back deck and watch deer, elk and fox. His 2.5 acres, next to the North Star Preserve, was also home to birds, beavers and fish. About one third of the property is wetlands. The property is in the alluvial fan of Warren Creek with ground water 1 to 2 feet below the surface.Bob’s house and the proposed Aspen Field Biology Lab were one story buildings, with low pitched roofs. The existing house is not visible from Highway 82 or the North Star Preserve in the summer. I know Bob would be upset with the proposed starter castle being proposed for his sanctuary.Ron ThompsonAspen
