From "Thumbs up, thumbs down" Opinion feature

April 23, 2001
THE NEWS-TIMES

"Thumbs up to the Nature Conservancy's interest in preserving the remaining green spaces in Fairfield County. The conservancy is working with the state, local communities, and private individuals to preserve large tracts of the landscapes that for too long have been taken for granted. Focusing on northern Fairfield County, property in southern Danbury, Ridgefield, Redding, Bethel and Newtown has been targeted. With Tarrywile Park in Danbury preserved, the state planning to purchase the water utility land owned by Kelda, and the Devil's Den Preserve protected in Weston, great progress is being made. Bethel needs to join the movement by adding its undeveloped property known as Terre Haute, once targeted for a golf course, to the list of protected green space. These protected lands preserve water supplies and ease the burdens of development."
