Have you noticed the large old oak trees that still grace many yards and roadsides in this area? To learn more about their significance, please join us at 2:00 pm on Sunday, February 19, 2017 as we introduce the Stahl Savanna Project.

He will also cover the ideas behind the Project and how you can get involved. The program is free and open to the public and refreshments will be served. Save the date!
