7th Annual Lytle Creek Day

Lytle Creek Day
Saturday, October 5, 2013

Please join the Lytle Creek League of Conservators on Saturday, October 5, 2013 as we once again celebrate the special natural resource we have here in our own backyard - the Lytle Creek Greenway. This year the Lytle Creek League of Conservators are privileged to celebrate in partnership with Wilmington College as they commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Frank O. Hazard Arboretum. The Arboretum is one of the "green" jewels along the Lytle Creek Greenway and a very fitting place to celebrate one of our community's special natural resources, Lytle Creek. Wilmington College will be honoring the legacy of Dr. Hazard, as well as Fred Anliot.
The Lytle Creek League of Conservators portion of the program includes the recognition for two outstanding local men - Dr. Frank Hazard, as Pioneer Conservator of the Year, for his legacy to Wilmington College and the natural world and Mr. Paul Hunter, Conservator of the Year, for his tireless dedication to the community in general and specifically for his important role as steward of Hunter Glen, another node on the Lytle Creek Greenway.

Lunch will be served in a beautiful setting at the Frank O. Hazard Arboretum on Elm Street ($8, payable that day). Parking is on Elm Street.

The day of celebration features:
9:00 a.m. - Adventure Run    More Adventure Run Info Here
10:00 a.m. - Tree Walk conducted by the Wilmington Tree Commission (meet at the back of the YMCA parking lot)
11:00 -12:00 noon - Lunch is served
