Mt. Pisgah/Arboretum

April 10, 1982

We first visited the arboretum headquarters where new plant, bird lists and maps were available. Rhoda Love, Arboretum Administrative Assistant then hiked with us along the one mile trail loop. There is a newly printed, self-guiding nature trail booklet now ready and it will be used for the first time this month when 800 school children will be visiting the Arboretum. Along the water garden trail lots of trillium were seen. The delphinium are in full bloom in May and line the trails known as “delphinium alley.” We came back by the new Riverbank trail.

We left the Arboretum site, and hiked to the top of Mt. Pisgah following the summit trail. Since it was cloudy and windy we had a short lunch stop and came back down.

No other public park in our area offers the Arboretum’s unique combination of qualities: accessibility, beautiful natural setting, and educational potential. Our Pisgah party included Angie Barta, Mary Bridgeman, John and Margaret Cecil, Bernie Claypool, Phyllis Ford, Linda, Lilli and Travis Frobeck, Erin Fate, Shirley Froyd, Rose Hess, Rhoda and Jenny Love, Jeanette Nichols, Kathy Ryan, Suzanne Steussy, Michelle Tambellini, Paula Vehrs, Eleanor Wilkerson and leader Dot Leland.
