Our Gratitude To The Following ...

Otis Sawyer
1899-1996
Our benefactor. Through his wisdom, his vision, his generosity and his understanding of the true value of our wooded environment -- his legacy is passed on. The fortunate amongst us remember his enthusiasm with fondness -- recalling the day that he proudly introduced us personally to each and every tree in his charge. It is the responsibility of everyone to support his initiative and protect this planet's gift for future generations. Otis Sawyer
The Sawyer Family Their ongoing support, guidance, interpretations and efforts have nurtured this thriving project -- critical in the early years.
