The Copeland Legacy: Conserving Native Plants

Join us for Community Read, a multi-institutional program designed to inspire reading, conversation, and action. This year's book, Grandma Gatewood's Walk by Ben Montgomery, traces the story of an unlikely heroine who, at 67, hikes the Appalachian Trail, bringing much needed attention to the appalling conditions of this national treasure and helping to initiate its restoration. The Copeland Legacy: Conserving Native Plants Just as Grandma Gatewood promoted the Appalachian Trail, our founders, the Copelands, were passionate advocates for preserving greenspace and native plants. Both accounts send the powerful message "one person inspires many." Read the book, then engage in a group discussion about these two influential stories, followed by a walk through our gardens and natural lands. For more information about this event at Mt. Cuba Center, call 302-239-8807.
