Donors' view

I walked Forest View from Country Manor to Fulton after the big rains today and everything seemed fine. The Creek really looked great after the recent clean up by Conservation Corps North Bay. It hasn't looked that neat in a long time. It was a terrific improvement and very much appreciated.
