Keep Similkameen wild and beautiful

Dear Gary,

The time has come when I can no longer remain silent. My own inner voice, my conscience, will no longer allow my silent acceptance of an intolerable situation. The P.U.D. is planning the destruction of a very special place to many here in north county. I speak of Enloe Falls on the Similkameen River.
