  1. I am excited to hear of your plans for a wildlife corridor at Hwy. 17. I am suggesting you plan a earth covered bridge across the highway. Deer and other wild animals do not know what a tunnel is and will refuse to enter. Wildlife tunnels under Orange County Calif. toll roads have failed. Colorado has been successful with recreating natural corridors that pass over high traffic areas. Good luck finding funding for the 280 acres your Trust needs to buy.
    Respectfully, Michael McMahan
