    We are spending millions to try and rescue the Bay because years ago no one thought “little creeks” would matter. Too late we found out they do. The entire watershed of the bay matters one little cove at a time. Generations of watermen have lost their family legacies because we did not take care of our earth. Plants and animals have lost their habitat and many are in trouble. When are we going to wake up and put future generations’ welfare ahead of the almighty dollar?

    My family has been in Lancaster County for many generations. We have enjoyed the wild life and this wonderful Dymer Creek. I am against putting a public boat ramp on such a property as the old Haynie/Bussells property. I can only imagine the damage it will do and continue to do with extreme dredging. How sad for the health of the creek.

    I encourage everyone to get involved with this effort. This is not a nimby (not in my back yard) fight. It is a crusade to save the environment. It is a fight to keep from destroying nature. It is a fight to keep from running off waterfowl. Did you know that Dymer Creek is visited by dolpins? How cool is that? If you care about what is happening to the environment but have never been involved before, this is the time to engage. Your support is desperately needed to help maintain a ecological treasure here in the Northern Neck. Please Volunteer.
