Graham Oaks

We have been visiting Graham Oaks Nature Park since it opened, and watched restoration efforts unfold.  Trees that once were teeny saplings are growing and spreading.  Native wildflowers and berries that were planted alongside the trees are firmly established.  But our favorite part is still the older forested area near a steep ravine with a creek.  Most likely it was left alone when the rest of the property was being farmed. It's cool and shady in there on a hot day.
