Some articles from Wildlife Activist:
For an overview of our strategy in re-vegetating the mountain, read Dan Kunkle’s article Watching Grass Grow — Update on the Restoration Process at Lehigh Gap, and its sequel, Watching Grass Grow II. Also see Dan’s Ecological Succession and Lehigh Gap.
For a bit of history on the formation of the refuge and the funding behind it, Bob Hoopes, our Treasurer, has put together a series of articles, starting with A Dream Come True, followed by From Idea to Reality: The Wildlife Center’s 2002 Transition, and finally Lehigh Gap Wildlife Refuge Is Open For Business. The retrospective, Five Years Ago and Back to the Future, provides an overview of the entire process. Dan Kunkle’s article, Remarkable Progress of Wildlife Refuge Land Fund, discusses a bit of the funding that makes the refuge possible. Links to the above and other articles are provided below.
