Letter: A Life Devoted to Conservation

To the Editor:

It is ironic that your editorial, “Trusting in Conservation,” revealing an effort in Vermont to redefine “forever” in land conservation matters, should appear in the Valley News only a few pages away from the obituary of Laurel Letter. Working with The Upper Valley Land Trust and the Lebanon Conservation Commission, Laurel devoted huge amounts of energy and a significant part of her other resources to land conservation. I would hope that this change is not enacted until we have an opportunity to discuss it with her.
