(Courtesy photo | For lehighvalleylive.com) comments Recently closed for the season, Cherry Valley Golf Course is under agreement of sale to a nonprofit land-preservation group as public open space. The Nature Conservancy is on target to close in January on the $1.7 million purchase of the 193-acre golf course at 2138 Croasdale Road, off Cherry Valley Road just north of the Northampton-Monroe county border, said Bud Cook, who is managing the purchase. “We have either funds in the bank or pledges over the next year and a half or so but they’re firm pledges,” Cook said Friday, “firm enough, so that we’re confident that we can move forward.” The conservancy’s plan is to immediately transfer ownership of the land to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to become part of the Cherry Valley National Wildlife Refuge. The clubhouse at the golf course is expected to be converted into a headquarters and visitors center for the refuge, which now spans some 500 acres. “The service also plans to establish a trail system and restore Cherry Creek before opening both to the public for hiking and fishing,” The Nature Conservancy said in a news release Friday announcing the purchase. “Plans also include transforming greens and fairways into native habitat to attract species found within the broader refuge including bats, bald eagles and other birds of prey, fresh water mussels, wildflowers and migratory birds.” The golf cart path at Cherry Valley Golf Course is planned for conversion into a nature path accessible to people with disabilities, and the clubhouse is expected to become headquarters and a visitors center for the Cherry Valley National Wildlife Refuge.

Friday’s announcement comes a day after ESSA Bank and Trust Foundation pledged money toward the purchase, as part of its 100th anniversary celebration, according to the conservancy. “The project represents the same kind of partnership with communities, government agencies, nonprofits, private foundations and individual supporters that formed to establish the Cherry Valley National Wildlife Refuge in 2008,” says Bill Kunze, executive director of the conservancy’s Pennsylvania Chapter, in the release.http://carterevansworld.pdxrwa.org/2016/08/04/thoughts-on-astute-methods-in-vocation

Repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act was one of Trumps biggest campaign promises. He now says hell keep portions that cover people with preexisting conditions and try to continue covering young adults on their parents plans.
