n-Wood Cemetery



What a beautiful walk we had at Green-Wood on Sunday for our first Nature Walk for Neighbors with Dementia. The morning rain cleared out into a beautiful afternoon for a stroll in nature. Our guide, Ari, was terrific and introduced us to some of the amazing trees at Green-Wood, including a taste of redbud blossoms. We wandered beautiful paths and saw some wildlife too.
