The WCC has sadly accepted the resignation of Kent Fox from the Board of Directors. Kent has served the WCC for many years. He has been the institutional memory of the organization, always able to explain how something came into being, what past policy has been, or what the terms of an easement or deed might be. He has worked tirelessly in many posts, most recently as WCC treasurer. Kent has always been there when there was work to be done--anything from removing poison ivy, to cleaning up a property, carrying a banner in the World of Wellesley parade, or hauling enormous amounts of sticks and leaves to the RDF in his little car. It is hard to imagine the WCC without Kent's wise counsel. We will miss him greatly.
The annual meeting of the Wellesley Conservation Council was held on April 16 at the Wellesley Free Library. The meeting included the election of officers and an expression of appreciation to Kent Fox who will be leaving the board. Following the business meeting, John Maguranis of Project Coyote gave a presentation on "Living with Coyotes: The most misunderstood and remarkable animal in North America" For a brief summary of the presentation, click here.
