The park is a great place to connect with nature to complete a host of activities following in the footsteps of Juliette Gordon Low.
“For in this United States of ours we have cut down too many trees and our forests are fast following the buffalo...so let us plant trees now.”
—Girl Scout Handbook (1913)
