Google Earth is a fascinating tool that can serve a multitude of purposes. For a photographer this can mean location scouting opportunities. For an environmentalist it can help give perspective to threatened landscapes such as the Glendora South Hills. Click on the image to see a higher resolution picture of the environmental degradation that is happening in my local community.

  1. Reports have filtered in that on the north side of Glendora’s South Hills Wilderness Park grading had taken place for home building pads the scares can still be see from the ridge line road that cuts doen the spin of the Park.

    Illegal dumping was also reported and later covered up with soil that moved during the construction of these pads and in other areas of the Park that were later covered up.

    Some of the people responsible have retired but others are still employeed by the City of Glendora, California U.S.A.

    This was the intro to the John Harrold show I used to go on every week. I kind of miss it! The video was made up of some pictures my friend Lee & I took of Colorama taking over a portion of the South Hills Wilderness park to run their flower business. That makes no sense to me because they’re introducting non-native plants to a wilderness park, using hiking trails for their own private roads, bringing polution to the wilderness park and using pesticides which could damage wildlife and native plants, etc. Their lease is up in 15 years (about 13 years from now). The lease is up for renewal every 5 years. The city council approved this without reading the lease agreement or even questioning where this was. Gary Clifford, Ken Herman, Karen Davis and Doug Tessitor supported the business being operated in the wilderness park. It’s so sad that money is more important than a unique wilderness area surrounded by an urban landscape. 🙁 The council people don’t understand that and I doubt they ever will. What most people look at and see as natural beauty, the council just sees dollar signs and ask what can it do to benefit themselves and the bottom line. It figures the business that would be put in the wilderness park to make a profit, has a president who’s motto is “greed is good”. How sickening.
