Letter: Thank You Kevin Wright

How fortunate our valley has been to have a such a committed individual fighting to preserve and educate the public about our most valuable resource: wildlife.

Good luck to you, Kevin. I can only hope you continue to be active and outspoken locally in preserving our local wildlife.
