Land around bird sanctuary an ugly mess

A recent survey of the southern boundary of the Adams Bird Sanctuary has revealed that a large swath of land has been decimated.

Dear Editor:

I am writing to advise that a recent survey of the southern boundary of the Adams Bird Sanctuary has revealed that a large swath of land, apparently within the bounds of the sanctuary, has been decimated.

Two of the members of the current council are well aware that the Summerland Rotary Club spent an incredible amount of time, effort and resources to make an attractive and functional entrance to the sanctuary.

As a result of the clear-cut in the area mentioned, the entrance now can only be described as an ugly mess.

When this property was donated to the municipality for park purposes, it assumed stewardship of this land and it is therefore ultimately responsible for its protection.

I assume that council will make all necessary enquires to determine who is responsible for this outrage and do what is necessary to rectify the problem.

Brian Adams
