Protect Coyote Hills


Bring nature back
By William Spicer - Letter to the Editor
Fremont Argus, June 28, 2007

Thank you for your June 15 front page article, "Where have all our birds gone to?"

We must pay attention to the alarming rate of bird decline.

According to a recent National Audubon Society report, the populations of 20 common American bird species have dropped by at least half in a mere 40 years.

The reason is urban sprawl. Audubon puts the responsibility squarely on the loss of our grasslands, forest and wetland habitats.

But both Fremont and Newark continue their plans to build adjacent to these critical habitats in alarming numbers.

Thousands of houses are being discussed or are on the drawing board for areas that are next to the refuge and the Coyote Hills. This is a problem we, as citizens, can have a direct local impact to reverse.

Join us in this battle. Let's do our part to bring nature back.
