Some observations of the T.J. Martin, Guadalupe Oak Grove and J. Fontana Parks:

My name is Pat Pizzo and I spend some hours in these parks since 2010 as part of the Martin-Fontana Parks Association (MFPA) and I wish to share some observations.   These are my personal observations and do not necessarily reflect the views of MFPA or its executive board.

Our parks are connected; and events in one may influence events in the other.  That is why I have included Guadalupe Oak Grove Park.

    I think you are on the right track as far as the Gophers in Jeffrey Fontana Park. We need more predators to do the job as “Mother Nature” intended.



  3. Yes use natural predators, they will take care of any actual problem. I am totally against trapping as we cannot relocate. The animals must be killed. What right have we to kill another species that is just trying to coexist in an arrea where they have lived as long as the Oak trees have.

    What was that estimate 300 years! They have being a real native on their side. Actually in doing such a splendid job on the Park, what is called an “Attractive Nuisance” has been created, and invitation to enjoy as we all do, human and critter alike.
