Take a Hike, SAVE LIME RIDGE'S PEAK

http://www.savemountdiablo.org/LimeRidge/TowerLimeRidgeHome.htm

8/2009--Join us for a hike to the peak of Lime Ridge to enjoy the beauty of the natural world and enjoy the spectacular views while learning about a threat to this wonderful resource.

The City of Walnut Creek is currently considering a proposal to grant a lease to Nextel to allow then to use the peak of Lime Ridge for expanded communications facilities, even though their lease expired two years ago.

This is the City’s opportunity to end this inappropriate use of the open space and to return the area to its natural setting by requiring the removal of the existing facilities.

Learn more about this proposal by joining us on one of our guided hikes through Lime Ridge, taking a self guided hike on your own, or by reading our comment letter to the City. Send a letter to the City to let them know that you support Save Mount Diablo’s position to return the open space to its natural setting.

Saturday August 22, 9am. Co-led by Troy Bristol, SMD’s Land Conservation Associate, and George Phillips, intern for SMD
