What can YOU do?


“Eighty percent of life is just showing up,” to quote Woody Allen.

Attend relevant meetings:

The board of trustees have their meetings on the third Thursday of every month, at the environmental center “Possum Lodge,” off Pinch Road, south of Mt. Gretna. When enough people turn up to the board meetings, things start to happen. (Or, better yet in this case, not happen.)

Write your Congressman!

Seriously, though: If your dudgeon is really high, below is a list of people concerned one way or other with this development. For the most part they are or would like to remain idyllically in denial of any opposition to the scheme. Please disavow them of this notion by writing to them; give them pause; calmly, reasonably and rationally – flaming is totally counter-productive:
