Join Us For a Night of Celebration & History
In 1997 (20 years ago), in a basement, a handful of concerned citizens met to develop a plan of action to prevent a pristine 40-acre parcel of forest from becoming a housing development. That land, a beautiful forest of oak, hickory and white pine almost 150 years old, is now part of the Baird Creek Greenway.
Out of that humble beginning, emerged the Baird Creek Preservation Foundation. Today the Foundation is working to do the necessary habitat restoration to maintain biological diversity and improve degraded areas so that the Baird Creek Parkway will reach its full potential as one of the premier wild parks in the Midwest.
Championing BCPF since that first meeting, our speaker, BCPF President Charlie Frisk will retrace the history of the BCPF and talk about the direction of our organization for future years. If you are familiar with the Baird Creek Greenway and want to get involved in continuing to preserve this natural area in an urban setting come and join us. We need all the support we can in order to continue to enhance the Greenway’s value as ecological, recreational, and educational resource for generations to come.
