Financial Support for 2024 Projects in the Park
  • We are happy to continue our support of the Park's reclamation of heritage farmlands project by purchasing trees and shrubs, both to replace those ash trees lost due to the Emerald ash-borer over the past few seasons, and to replace the buckthorn that we have been removing for the past two years.
  • Our major financial commitment this year is the restoration of the Cedar Sands Trail in the Outlet Sector of the Park.

    This popular trail has been in existence for more than twenty-five years, and is starting to show its age.

    The Friends anticipate spending over $20,000 this year to repair wear-and-tear, as well as remedying any safety issues that have developed due to the unusual high-water events of 2017 and 2019.
