Serious about open space

ORANGE - The Orange Conservation Commission recently held a gathering - shown in the photo - at the Case Memorial Library to thank those who have worked to preserve open space in town.
Chairman Sharon Ewen said she wanted to "thank all the hard work and dedication of time and efforts" of those who worked together to care for open spaces.
Resident Ed Tucker was honored for his leadership on the Conservation Commission from 1998 to 2010.
In recognition of all of his efforts the commission presented him with an engraved hiking staff, Ewen said.
Howard Treat and his senior leadership group took on the task of clearing trails at the Housatonic Overlook and holding CT Trail Days at the same area.
They were instrumental in bringing out almost 150 hikers who walked the trail that day, Ewen said.
