- we are taking the next step and now seeking donors to help us rehabilitate the entire structure for active recreation.
Last but not least, we are pleased to share news that we have retained
Larry Weaner and his firm to create a thoughtful proposal to remove invasives from the Jay Meadow. Our goal is to replant with native grasses and wildflowers. In 2016, we will be applying for grants and seeking private contributions to help rehabilitate this critical habitat.
This is an enormous team effort and we are grateful to an extraordinary number of people.
