2-22-2014 Winter Nature & History Walk

Feb 12, 2014 by

Join us for a winter walk in Glen Providence Park! Learn about winter characteristics of the park’s native shrubs and plants, and look for early signs of Spring. Along the way, we’ll share historical photos, maps and descriptions, and we always keep an eye out for wildlife! We’ll meet at the wooded entrance at 3rd & West Streets, pointing out the boundary of the planned 1.1 acre construction area for a new dam at 3rd Street. Enjoy this lovely part of the park while you can!
