I am signing because I spent my childhood in the ecology camps of Westchester county and growing up, my family would take hikes every weekend at a different nature preserve.

Muscoot Farm has been a life long joy to my family. The kids learned to respect & appreciate the animals that provide food and products to us. Watching the babies grow, and seeing the work it takes to run a farm. As an artist, the farm has been a source of inspiration, and I even exhibited in the Main House Gallery several times. I can't imagine how a working farm could manage with less, and remain a safe and beautiful for the animals as well as the public.

I'm signing this because it's VERY IMPORTANT; the parks are gorgeous and appreciated and people come from all over the world to appreciate them. Having the Staff and curators is as important to help work with schools and educators for a multitude of reasons. 5k signatures is all we neeed?? I CAN GET US up to the 5k signatures if that will do something??

Thanks for adding your voice.

This very night I will have the privilege to be at the Blue Mountain lodge to share a revitizing evening of a pot luck dinner, time to fellowship
around the fireplace to usher in the winter and awake refreshed to a country breakfast - right here in the City of Peekskill !! 25 years ago I spent an organizational weekend at this lodge to solidify the formation of the RiverLovers, Inc., a Sloop Club of the Clearwater, which currently meets on the third Friday of the month at the Nature Center at the Croton Point Park!! RiverLovers provided the ShadFest at Croton Point Park for 19 years and that event no longer exists because of the last round of budget cuts!! Save our Curators - leave all staff positions in the Westchester County Budget!! So much and so many count in it - including me, the organizations I belong to and all my fellow citizens who gain so much Quality of Life with the accessibility of these our local recourses!! I hope John Testa and Catherine Borgia -who I voted for - are listening along with the other Westchester County Legislators! Thank you!!

The nature centers are a critical part of the public education about conservation, ecology and nature. Please maintain them.

I'm signing because one of the things I love about Westchester are our parks and nature centers. Our nature centers provide a way for adults and children alike to appreciate and learn the importance of nature.
