Lepp, who is producing a documentary on the battle to save Thundering Waters Forest with fellow filmmaker Stacey Koudys, discussed the need to save this natural area on 610 AM CKTB’s Tim Denis program.

He also called on listeners to join him and other Niagara area citizens at Niagara Falls City Hall at 6:30 p.m. this coming August 23rd to press the elected council of this Niagara, Ontario city to turn the urban development project down at the Thundering Waters Forest location.
