On the premise that holiday weekends can sometimes have unexpected gaps, I'll be leading a nature and culture walk at Herrontown Woods--Sunday, May 24, at 1:30pm. Others with the new nonprofit Friends of Herrontown Woods may join in, to talk of recent habitat restoration efforts and the mysteries of magnetism found in some of the boulders. Culture comes into play with the Veblen and farming legacies. Meet at the parking lot (it's down the short road across from Smoyer Park entrance on Snowden Lane). Read about all the doings at Herrontown Woods on facebook and at VeblenHouse.org.
The Rotary Club of Princeton includes the Veblen House at Herrontown Woods among its service projects. They're having their annual Pancake Festival fundraiser at Palmer Square this Saturday, 8am to noon. Money raised goes to community projects and scholarships. All you can eat--pancakes, fruit and bacon--for $10. Pre-K free.
