When the land conservancy’s board of directors gathered for its June meeting earlier this month, a central part of its discussion was the recent turmoil in our nation, and in our community, around issues of racism and social justice. Out of this discussion came the following statement, which I’d like to share with you:

“‘Preserving the rural lands and character of Adams County.’ It’s our mission, and we believe in its vital importance to our community. But in recent weeks we’ve also been asking ourselves: What for?

Chris Little is chair of the Land Conservancy of Adams County Communications Committee.
