ORANGE — Last October, a group of Turkey Hill School students accepted an environmental challenge to create a plan to save a natural place in our community. After selecting the pond that exists right on the school property, they quickly learned that it serves as home to a variety of wildlife and also provides the necessary drainage for the school property. What they also discovered is that despite these attributes, sadly enough, it was never given a name.
Recently, a team of dedicated youngsters attended a Board of Selectmen's meeting requesting that this small but important body of water be given an official name to help maintain and preserve it. Their suggestion: Turkey Hill Pond.
