February is the season for love. This month we reflect upon the special people in our lives and the special places that we hold dear. For many of us, parks and natural spaces are the venue where life's milestones take place. There's just something about the beauty of nature that connects us to each other and makes us thankful for friends and family.
Weddings are popular at our county parks, with ceremonies filling the enclosed shelters at Fallasburg Park, Townsend Park, Wabasis Lake Park, and Johnson Park spring through fall. Our Executive Director, Kate Meyer held her wedding at Wabasis Lake Park last summer after falling in love with the moss carpeted forest surrounding the shelter. Friends and family gathered among the towering oaks as she and her husband exchanged vows.
This February, we encourage you to make a gift to your favorite park in honor of a loved one. We’ll send you a special digital valentine to share to celebrate your gift.
