Don't tamper with Belleau Woods
Hooray, and a big thank you to Edna E. Heatherington of Glen Ellyn for speaking up on the Daily Herald "Your Opinion, Your Views" page in the Monday, May 20 issue. I am in absolute, total agreement with everything Edna speaks about regarding St. Francis attempting to acquire DuPage County Forest Preserve land for a parking lot and/or a football field.
Shame on state Rep. Jeanne Ives to attempt to change state law that protects our forest preserves. Belleau Forest Preserve must be saved from anyone disturbing, threatening, and ruining this pristine area.
It is true also that the forest absorbs the water from storms. This green space is very valuable and beautiful to the area. More people need to know about the threats being made by political persons and in this case St. Francis High School administration. Beware also of people that change existing legislation that protects our preserves wherever they may located.
