To the Editor:

(Re: “Pruning around Duck Lake is ‘esthetic destruction’”, April 21)

I was out at the north end of Duck Lake at the old pumphouse and found the destruction there astonishing. The vegetation has been completely destroyed at least 25-30 feet from the water’s edge. A large area of bird nesting vegetation has been destroyed and water animals will now have to run the gauntlet from predators and splintered saplings just to get to the water.

And now the so called guardians of Mother Nature have decided that the beavers must be destroyed because they are doing what beavers do, and have been doing for centuries: They are building dams. How dare they!

They deny people access by motorized vehicles from Summit Creek Park out to enjoy the lake because we might disturb the flora and the fauna. This bunch of incompetents is doing a good job of destroying the place on their own. I will gladly repeat Mr. Colonel’s words: “What a joke” indeed.
