Dear Secretary Beaton,
I hope you will protect the valuable habitat in the part of the Blue Hills called Indian Line Farm and the nearby Farnham-Connolly Memorial Park.
Both of these state lands lie within the Ponkapoag-Fowl Meadow Critical Area of Environmental Concern, which emphasizes their ecologic value. They provide rare habitat to wetland species, migratory birds and pollinators.
These are two of four sites being considered for the construction of an ice rink. Both construction and operation of the ice rink would significantly harm the wildlife that depends on these properties.
[Add a personal story about why protecting the Blue Hills wildlife is important to you.]
Thank you for helping to protect the wildlife and its habitat in and around the Blue Hills.
