Preliminary planning and construction is beginning to take shape on our Nature-based Playscape project. For part of Phase I of this grand design, we are starting work on the Willow Tunnel. This is a time-sensitive aspect of the project, as willow is coming into bloom right now, and we need to harvest the branches while they are still supple and bendable, and before they have too many blossoms on them.  And we need your help!  For more info, or to sign up to collect willow branches, please go here
