Early this morning before camp started Luke DiBerardinis delivered the benches he had built for the visitor center barnyard. I am especially excited because I have long anticipated having a place where visitors could sit and enjoy the barnyard garden and barn architecture.
I designed and installed the gardens with spaces for the benches in 2001, but I knew I couldn't build benches myself of the quality I wanted. And these oak benches are from hazard trees from here on the preserve, so they have a story.
I hope you'll stop in and enjoy this addition to the preserve.
