Lona, I am very sorry to learn of Buck's passing. It was a pleasure to work with him to secure conservation of the Peter and Victoria Nature Reserve and other projects in Murrysville. I will remember Buck as truly committed to conservation of that nature reserve and also as a very kind person who worked to do good things for our community.
