Housenick Memorial Park Nature Walks

These walks will be taking place at the Johnson Estate this Saturday and Sunday (11/5 and 11/6).  As you know from the posts below, this property is involved in a bit of controversy concerning the fate of the house and some of the surrounding property.  This is a great chance to check out what this new park is all about.  Please see below for more details.
