Bob Henderson, founder of the Puente Hills Habitat Preservation Authority and mastermind behind the open space acquisition “tipping fee” for the Puente Hills Landfill, is leaving his post on the Authority’s Board. Having served in the role of Chair for 25 years and two years as a board member, Bob will focus on ensuring the Wildlife Corridor pinch points of the Puente Hills are protected–specifically looking at the Hsi Lai Temple expansion and its impacts.
We are eternally grateful for his contributions through the Authority and his years on the Whittier City Council. There are nearly 4,000 acres protected because of his creativity in open space preservation. As a side note, Bob still serves on the Hills For Everyone Board.
