Thank you to an unsung hero

On this Thanksgiving holiday, I want to take the opportunity to publicly thank Dianne Erskine-Hellrigel, one of the unsung heroines of Santa Clarita.

Erskine-Hellrigel is the president of the Community Hiking Club. Besides leading hikers of all levels (fast, slow, new and experienced) on great hikes every Saturday, she uses the club to do so much more for everyone in the community.

She takes youth groups (home-schooled, developmentally disabled and disadvantaged kids) on hikes to teach them about nature and the cycle of life, and organizes them to pick up micro-trash that would otherwise be ingested by California Condors.

She organizes community volunteers to perform trail work and maintain a native garden. She also works tirelessly to educate and gather public support to preserve more natural areas for our children and their children to enjoy.

Thank you so much, Erskine-Hellrigel, for all that you do.
