Reader appreciates recognition of Thornwood Preserve

To the editor:

The article “Getting to know Thornwood: from roots to canopy” by Joe Whitfield (Jan. 20, A4) was excellent. Thornwood Preserve is a fantastic addition to the city’s recreation areas; it’s well tended, and the projects by the Eagle Scouts are a welcome addition.

We enjoyed a first-day hike in Thornwood on New Year’s Day — a bit muddy in places but a fine outing. Seeing the park with little foliage was a hoot. I can’t wait to compare my winter pictures with new ones later this year.

I look forward to Mr. Whitfield’s next contribution to the Daily Reporter.
