About twenty-five people came to tour the lily ponds at Tower Grove Park Sunday. Another great ‘Pam event’! She started us off with a variety of drinks; Ben Nowak and Steve Hogenmiller gave us plant maps; and they were soon explaining the changes to the pond, telling about what is planted where and pointing out some wildlife. Thanks to Bob Temper for the first two photos, and that of the mallard, and especially the final photo of the green heron!
