Change in Hamilton County Park District leadership desperately needed!!!
The residents of Hamilton County need a park district leadership team that cares about and prioritizes wildlife and wildlife habitat. Time for change is long overdue . . . we must act now! Read more . . .
If you truly support the Hamilton County Park District, and wildlife conservation as a whole, then you must stand with me, and call for a replacement of the current leadership team.
We can still have all of the amazing recreational opportunities we have now . . . and more, but first we must protect the land, and the wildlife it supports! Plus, we need leadership that does not purposefully and repeatedly mislead and deceive the residents of Hamilton County, and waste millions in tax dollars. We need leadership that is totally open and transparent, and has their priorities straight.
There is yet a great deal more information to be added to this site, along with numerous photos and videos that detail the serious disconnect that Great Parks leadership has with wildlife and wildlife habitat conservation.
In case you are wondering why I am taking what some might see as a strong, and even harsh approach, there are several reasons combined.
1. They are doing a terrible job of managing the natural areas of the park, many of which are now overrun with catastrophically invasive non native plants.
2. They repeatedly use their strength in marketing to mislead and deceive the public in many ways, and of course one of these is by convincing people that they are doing a good job of protecting that which has been entrusted into their care.
3. Not only do they show no true passion for wildlife, they actually show very little interest in it. This is very clearly demonstrated both in the information I have collected from their website, published documents, and news articles, in spending priorities, and by the current condition of the natural areas of the parks.
4. I first tried to approach them with a friendly offer to help them with a property that they own, but are not currently using as a park. Their response to me was utterly disrespectful, and included them sending out a worker to bush hog down a large patch of Swamp Milkweed that had Monarch caterpillars on it and was still forming seed pods. You can read some of the rest of that story here (even more yet to come), and can see the collection of wildlife photos I started since first stumbling across the property just this past August. (Conrey Wildlife . . . albums 6 through 21).
Current leadership must be replaced. The need is urgent, and immediate. I care too much, and saw no other choice.
Go to this page to really start digging into much of what I have uncovered so far, and be sure to get to the second half of the page where I list my current 14 biggest issues with the current GP leadership.
Beginning soon, I will be leading tours to point out some prime examples of some of the problems. I will also be making myself available for TV, radio, and newspaper interviews, as well as being fully prepared to publically debate anyone (including GP leadership) on this subject. And yes, I have lots of awesome ideas and recommendations on how the Hamilton County Park District can truly become great . . . more on that later.
