These organizations have a stake in the Valley, and in the park's delicate ecosystem.Read More
At the moment, the fate of AngelFest and Woodley Park is in the hands of the Army Corps of Engineers. There is no way to know how the ruling will come down. But in the meantime, those of us who feel the giant music festival should seek out a different, more appropriate location should be letting our elected representatives know that our interest in the issue is still strong and our opposition determined.Contact Your Reps
