Preserving Greenspaces

Back in the late 1960s, 11-year-old Barbara Conley ran through the woods along Spring Creek barefoot in search of blackberries. She and her family ambled along the banks hunting for Native American arrowheads. As teenagers, she and her friends walked across a tree that had fallen in the creek to picnic on a nearby sandy bar. In the evenings, her family dined on perch and other fish caught on the trotlines Conley tended to each day. Though Conley lived along Spring Creek almost 50 years ago, not a whole lot has changed.
