Inspiration


We have two wonderful collections of forest and meadow photos taken by one of the group’s organizers, Samuel Schmieding, PhD over the course of several days in July. We posted them in 2 albums on Facebook. If you wish to be inspired to take action to protect this forest, we urge you to take a look. Let their beauty speak to you!

The views expressed on this website encompass a variety of perspectives. Some may embrace a more traditional conservative view of the issue, others may be more progressive and come to the issue from a primarily environmental perspective. We hope that those who become involved in the cause will adhere to the principles of peaceful protest and non-violence. That is a minimum for those who wish to have their views appear in blogs or on the Inspiration page. The views expressed on those two pages are not necessarily those of the organizers of Save EWEB Forest, as we are a loosely affiliated group.
