MSTA Meeting Dec 2015
Lucius Burch Natural Area
The first letter was written by Ollar Fuller, a Nesbit family friend. It introduced the second letter from Richard Estes, Mrs. Nesbit's cousin. Mr Estes is a wildlife biologist with a PhD in zoology. He was a research associate with the Smithsonian Institution at the time and worked for several wildlife preservation organizations. Both letters speak to the family's intent that the property be subject to minimal development to stay in as natural condition as possible.
Letters written about Nesbit Park (named Bartlett Park at the time) to the Shelby County Conservation Board about the Nesbit family's intention that the property be preserved in a natural condition. Bartlett Parks and Recreation also should honor the Nesbit's wishes.
