Last Week’s Program

Dr. David Baker - Vision 2002, Town of Highlands. This proved to be a “soaring” experience as Dr. Baker described and showed slides of the ‘Brooks Park Project’, an effort by the community oriented “Vision” club of the Town of Highlands, to restore this unique portion of the Palisades Park to its magnificent splendor, where trails lead to sights that boggle the imagination. Dr. Baker, himself a Naturalist, described the various birds one might encounter while exploring this unique portion of the Hudson Highlands. A truly great program enjoyed by all!
