Two years ago there were people who had lived in Ely all their lives that refused to believe there were Bittern and otter in the Roswell pits/Potter reed bed area.
Now, not only is there photographic proof of their existence but other rare species have been documented as well.
The quiet, watchful people of Ely have been out there in all seasons demonstrating patience, vigilance and passion.

As a resident of Ely, it's enlivening to know that the pits are safe from development so my family and I can continue to grow up watching the area change. The saplings become trees, the trees becoming part of a landscape rich with wildlife and natural beauty.
I would like to thank the committee of the LCPRE for all the blood, sweat and tears they have poured in representing the interests and beliefs of concerned local residents and for changing the minds of the people who didn't consider the pits worth saving.
