Rush Holt Joined FoHVOS to Honor Late Ted Stiles

On Saturday afternoon, a little over 35 nature loves and Rep. Rush Holt paid tribute to the late Ted Stiles by participating in the annual Friend of Hopewell Valley Open Space (FoHVOS) Ted Stiles Hike through the Ted Stiles Preserve at Baldpate Mountain in Hopewell Township.

Ted Stiles was an environmentalist, an integral part of the Hopewell community, a tireless protector of the environment spearheading countless open space projects, as well as being a renowned educator.
Holt spoke about Stiles’s vision for creating an “emerald necklace” of preserved lands throughout NJ for this and future generations. Holt also pondered what Stiles would think of the issues facing Hopewell Township and Mercer County right now and shared that Hold was certain that Stiles’s his voice would certainly “ring loud and clear” against those that would negatively impact the area and environment.
