The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Event Details

This exhibit will be on display at Goodenow Grove's SnapperPond Trail through Wednesday, March 31. Preserve hours are 8 a.m. to sunset.

Enjoy Goodenow Grove’s Snapper Pond Trail with a new sense of wonder. Hike along the preserve’s most popular trail looking for seven new sculptures nestled into the natural landscape. Sculptor Jennifer Meyer creates the artwork from trash, broken car parts and even an old furnace and transforms these materials into whimsical nature characters and flowers. She hopes by seeing these discarded items turned beautiful that people will be inspired to think before throwing something out and instead consider giving it a new life!
