Visit to Pennypack Trust

Pennypack Ecological Restoration Trust has successfully preserved thousands of acres in and around Huntingdon Valley, north of Philadelphia.  

Pennypack is home to native plants and wildlife.

Marjorie worked with Pennypack staff to install a butterful garden, seen below in the snow.

Marjorie worked with a great group of volunteers and Chris Dartley, seen at right, to start a native plant nursery and plant sale.

New Apartment for Alan and Cyane in Chestnut Hill

Alan and Cyane are lucky to have found a rental apartment in Chestnut Hill, Pennsylvania.
Below image shows the great public art standing outside our block of 8 units.
Ours is a 625 sq ft one bedroom.

The Cherokee apartment complex is right above the cliffs along the Wissahickon Creek section of Fairmount Park.
Forbidden Drive is a wonderful walking and biking gravel path.

A great greenway corridor open to walkers, runners, bikers; it also preserves water quality and wildlife and plants. Also, a wonderful 4 mile commute to get to Marjorie and David's retirement community.
