January 26 Celebratory Winter Walk Kick-Off Event

January 26: Winter Walk in the Woods with Paul Downs


Twenty-eight woods enthusiasts (including three exuberant dogs), enjoyed a splendid winter walk in the woods complete with newly fallen snow on the morning of January 26, led by Paul Downs, president of the Committee to Save the Green Belt. Sights included the famous Witch Tree, the Heart Tree, and the tallest pine in the forest. Downs pointed out where he found an Indian arrowhead and shared numerous stories including eight-foot high floodwaters rising from the 100-year old floodplain and the burning of Blueberry Hill many years ago, now in recovery.
