As you may know, work continues on a park and nature center at Whittier Peninsula.
This is prime real estate in the heart of the center city.
Because of some prior uses, it was considered too costly to build a residential/retail development on the land. Instead, a joint effort between Audubon and Franklin County Metro Parks (VOTE TUESDAY 5/5 FOR THE LEVY) is producing a wonderful park and nature center.
Heather Starck and Doreen Whitley at Audubon gave me permission to share the following photo:
Audubon wants to thank all the Earth Day volunteers who helped last weekend!
The opening will be in June, and announcements will be forthcoming!
