Princeton Day School Community Day at Mountain Lakes
At one stop along the way, a student asked why it's called Mountain Lakes if there are no mountains nearby. I explained that Princeton bestows its ennobling magic on all within its borders, making ponds into lakes and hills into mountains. These words having been spoken, I am sure that all within earshot gazed out upon the landscape with new eyes.
The Friends of Princeton Open Space thank the students and teachers of Princeton Day School for their contribution to restoring habitat in town.
Thanks also to community volunteers Andrew Thornton and Tony Beesley for helping out with supervision.
