Editor: Whether it be with my mother, my husband, our children or granddaughter, there have been many evenings over the years when we would pull to the side of New Valley Church Road and listen to the chorus of frogs sing their songs of life. That beautiful sound would always bring a smile to our faces and end our days on a cheerful note. It would truly sadden me to lose that priceless gift of nature.
So, from the bottom of my heart, I say “Thank you” to the Kuhn Family Foundation. Through their purchase of Stumptown Woods and with the restoration efforts of the Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy, this legacy of nature is able to bring its gifts to many generations to come. Their concern and generosity towards the preservation of western Loudoun has touched more lives than they will know.
My hope is that, while the Board of Supervisors debates the future of Loudoun County, they never lose sight of the priceless beauty and sounds it has to offer. Once gone, it sadly may never return.
