Whole Earth Center Donates $3,000 to Friends of Herrontown Woods

(l-r) Friends of Herrontown Woods President Steve Hiltner, Whole Earth Center Board Member Agnes Mironov, and Friends of Herrontown Woods Board Members Ahmed Azmy, Jon Johnson, and Inge Regan

The Whole Earth Center in downtown Princeton has donated $3,000 to the Friends of Herrontown Woods for the continuing restoration of public trails and the Veblen House.

Over the past three years, volunteers have taken the lead in clearing trails that had become blocked by overgrowth and fallen trees in Herrontown Woods and Autumn Hill Reservation.

The donation is also helping fund steps towards the renovation of the historic home, barn and cottage of Oswald Veblen, an internationally renowned Princeton University mathematics professor instrumental in the founding of the Institute for Advanced Study. Veblen donated much of his land to Mercer County in 1957 to form Princeton’s first nature preserve.

For more information and upcoming nature walks, visit FOHW.org. Parking for a visit to Herrontown Woods is located across Snowden Lane from the entrance to Smoyer Park in Princeton.
