A History & Nature Hike

What a beautiful morning we had for our History & Nature Hike on Saturday! Fifteen adults and children enjoyed the foliage as we hiked along some lesser-used trails.  Those were the Mountain Laurel Trail and Shingle Mill Trail, as marked on our historically annotated trail map we distribute at our events!

We shared 15 photos of how the park used to look, including this 1975 photo of the pond’s island.  It looks just a bit different today!

We also shared stories about the park and its natural history, and learned interesting information about native & invasive plants along the way.

Enjoy some photos from our walk.  And join us next time!
