To The Editor: Public invited to open house at Bowling Green park

Often while I am traveling down Wintergarden Road between Wooster Street and Sand Ridge Road, I will look at the Wintergarden Woods on the east and wonder how many Bowling Green citizens have passed by every day and never turned down the road leading to the woods. They are not aware of the "hidden assets" to be found within the woods - in its midst is a rustic looking building with a nature library, a large community room with a cozy fireplace, men and women rest rooms, and a kitchen. This building, formerly called Wintergarden Lodge, was used by Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and Youth Hostel groups for overnight camping and has now been converted to a Nature Center. It is also available for public use by organizations, families, and youth groups for a nominal fee. Beside this building, there are nature trails throughout the area.
If you have never been there before, I would like to invite you to attend an Open House to view these surroundings on Sunday, Dec.15 from 1-4 p.m. You will have an opportunity to enter a drawing for a framed nature print by Harold Roe and to view the plans for future renovations. Your comments or suggestions will be appreciated. If you are not able to attend, I suggest that sometime during the holidays you take a break from all the hustling activities and enjoy the serenity of this area. Bring the family along for a hike on the nature trails. (And by the way, you might want to bring along a camera in case you get a glimpse of any wildlife like a possible deer, raccoon or fox!)
