Dear Sir or Madam:
I support efforts by the Conway Conservation Commission and individuals in Conway to change the designation of the Conway State Forest (CSF) from Woodland to Reserve. I believe that the heart of this large and biological important forest should be allowed to change into a late successional (old-growth) forest over time. While the surrounding land is open to forestry, creating a old-growth forest in the heart would provide benefits to humans, animals, and plant communities and help protect water supplies in the area.
