Concern for Nevis
Nevis has always and will always be more of a home to me than any other I have lived in. I do not live in Nevis, but visit every year since birth. In the last 5-7 years , I have seen significant changes in the land and wildlife. 3-4 years ago , I watched as part of the Paul Bunyan State Forest was destroyed for, of course, wood. I know from first hand experience that there were American Bald Eagles, Osprey, and numerous woodland creatures living in what, at best, could be described as close proximity. These creatures were living within yards of the destruction. Within the last 2-3 years, I've noticed a definite decrease in the population of beaver. Also easy to notice is how many more deer are seen on roadways. I truly believe most, if not all of this, is caused by the lack of concern for the loss Nevis encounters with each new tax dollar earned from new building. I see a careless disregard for trees that are older than our grandparents. I write this letter just to express my concerns for a land and people I love. Hoping that anyone who reads this will give some thought to what they would hope for Nevis in the future. Personally, my hope is that my grandchildren will get to see the clean waters, lush forests, and vast wildlife that I was fortunate enough to see. Please consider that tax dollars aren't everything. What do we lose each time a new septic system is put on the lake? Can we really believe that when 3-4 times as much forest is cut down than is needed for a home it doesn't matter? If you are someone who has any say in any of these matters, please take the time to do what you can now. If not for yourself, then for the children. Nevis, MINNESOTA--What a wonderful place! Pleases do all you can to keep it that way.
