Comments on Paynes Prairie plan

-A A +A

 Those who were at the September Cracker Chapter (FTA) meeting are aware of the discussion about major changes that are about to be implemented at Paynes Prairie. I asked one of the members of "Friends of the Prairie" to provide the address of a park official so that we might voice our individual concerns about the change. The following is her response:
