Help maintain Olmsted's vision for the land while unearthing the lost entrance to the carriage road connection to Clark's gardener cottage in the dell between the south and west fields. Meet on the south terrace at 9:30. Please wear sunscreen, long pants, socks, and closed shoes, and bring your gloves and loppers! Rain date Friday, April 29, at 9:30 am.
