• Call/email the Archdiocese and tell them to pursue a conservation option for this tax-exempt forest.
• Call Alex Charlton's office at 610-544-9878. Ask him to speak up for open space. Losing this last forest in
eastern Delaware County is not in his constituents’ interest.
• Call Senator McGarrigle at 610-853-4100. Ask him to speak up for open space in his district.
• Support candidates for office who truly support the preservation of open space.
• Call county council members at 610-891-4264 and ask them to protect this land. Ask them to put an "open space bond question on November's ballot. Delco's home rule charter does not allow residents of the county
to place questions on the ballot. Their email addresses are here. Unlike every other suburban Philadelphia
county, Delco has never had an open space bond to save open space.
• Call the township commissioners and ask them to help us protect this forest.
• Sign and share our petition to the Vatican. The Vatican must be made aware of the Archdiocese’s plan to
destroy this forest in spite of Pope Francis’ recent environmental encyclical.
• Send a separate letter to the Vatican (His Holiness Pope Francis, Vatican City State, 00120)
You might hear officials say that this is a local matter and that it’s outside their purview. Remind them other state legislators like Nick Micozzie helped save open space (Little Flower) in his district. Senator Andy Dinniman of Chester County is currently actively assisting two preservation movements. State Representative Greg Vitali of Haverford was directly involved in the substantial preservation of 170 acres on the former site of Haverford Hospital. If these legislators of both parties can get involved, so can Bill Adolph, Tom McGarrigle, and County Council.
