Keith Ohmart—Conservation activist
Conservation of land in a community like a Lexington is a hot-button issue. Keith and the Citizens for Lexington Conservation maintain hundreds of acres of conservation land. Armed with his trusty hedge-clippers, Keith looked ready to clear some land in the Parker Meadow where we photographed him. A snow shovel might have been more helpful that cold January day, but the pristine beauty of Parker Meadow shines through in this portrait. We are blessed to have the many miles of trails and land in our town and even more blessed to have people like Keith to vigilantly maintain them for recreational use.
