Cronk’s Rocky Woodland: A Visit with Wellesley Neighbors November 13

On Sunday, November 13 from 2-4 pm, the Wellesley Conservation Land Trust and Pippa and Judith (Cronk’s Neighborhood Stewards) invite Westonians to join their southern neighbors for hot cider and donuts around the fire pit at Cronk’s Rocky Woodland. Never heard of it? Well, it’s a pocket park delight and worth a visit–not to mention that the town is celebrating its new fire screen, which may seem a small deal to you, but then I surmise that you have never been around tight-budgeted conservation work.

Explore the charming Hansel & Gretel Cottage, learn about its history, and meet members of the Wellesley Conservation Land Trust, one of my favorite conservation organizations. Learn how you can help “Cronk’s” continue as the wildflower garden that Gertrude Cronk established in the 1930s for the public to enjoy in perpetuity.

To learn more about “Cronk’s” and the wildflower garden, check out their website and video.

Sunday, November 13th at 2-4PM (shine or rain)
