Spring O Spring!

We begin this episode (105) of Walk in the Park with naturalist and songwriter Becca Harber as she sings her song “Spring O Spring” at Buttermilk Falls State Park in Ithaca, NY, accompanied by musicians Will Fudeman and Richie Holtz. We take a look at last week’s Ithaca Festival, then consider the arduous and dangerous work park employees must do to clean loose rock from cliffs before opening trails in the Finger Lakes region of New York. Then we review our new series, “Glimpses of Nature,” and finally take a look at what’s going on at parks around the country.
