Landmarks Conservation Competition Emphasizes on What Needs Protecting

The American Association of Endodontists (AAE) declared that it would like you to go cast vote among your preferred of four urban landmarks: the Chicago River, Boston’s Charles River Esplanade, San Antonio’s Phil Hardberger Park and Philadelphia’s Wissahickon Valley Park.

“Endodontists understand what’s worth saving,” stated AAE President Dr. Patrick E. Taylor. “Just like endodontists are an ally to natural teeth, the AAE wants to be an ally to natural landmarks that are worth saving.”

Situated in Boston, MA, the Charles River Esplanade is a 3.2-mile stretched and 64-acre linear state park beside the banks of the Charles River going from the Museum of Science to the Boston University Bridge.

The park supports a profuse 150-year history. The Esplanade houses the magnificent Hatch Memorial Shell, numerous ancient monuments, and more than five miles of trails, along with having a stunning landscape of some 1,700 trees and 14 ornamental gardens.

The Chicago River is back today, even after being mistreated at times. The quality of water has improved, about 70 types of fish and innumerable types of birds call it their home and people blissfully paddle on it.

Phil Hardberger Park is renowned as the finest place in San Antonio to sense the wild.

Stretched over 330 acres, this ex- dairy farm is one of the last standing undeveloped parcels in San Antonio, an oasis enclosed inside freeways and malls. It is a beautiful landscape.

Stretched over 1,800 acres, the Philadelphia’s Wissahickon Valley Park is a modern-day oasis of vivid sceneries, thick forests and gorgeous free-flowing streams.

More than 50 miles of wooded trails for biking, hiking, etc. breeze through a valley surrounding Wissahickon Creek. The area’s abundant history is seen in the park’s various iconic landmarks, from a more than 160-year-old eatery in the center of the park to the Red Covered Bridge.

Voting will be carried out until the 24th of April, 2019, and the landmark generating the most votes will be given $20,000 for the purpose of its preservation and $30,000 to the free endodontic services to the city in which the landmark is situated.
