Isn’t this the best time of year to be outdoors? Well, if you feel like visiting what sounds like a wonderful place right here at home then head over to Gilbertsville Road and stop in at the new Althouse Arboretum. I heard from Nancy Baker that they quite a lot to offer there. For example she said that there are over 2,000 feet of walking trails and there are future plans for an educational center, a zen garden and a children’s forest that might be offering children night hikes sometime soon.
Upper Pottsgrove is making a wonderful investment in their community in purchasing and opening these green areas. I applaud them and all of the people who have worked to make the open space welcoming to neighbors.
By the way, if you are the kind of person who loves open spaces and you’d like to help by volunteering yourself, then please head on over there tomorrow for their Volunteer Day!
