Veblen Birthday BBQ Bash
June 23 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
One event on September 19, 2019 at 2:00 pm
Come to a BBQ on the grounds of Veblen House, hosted by the Friends of Herrontown Woods. Food, drink, games, and socializing in celebration of the 139th birthday of mathematician and visionary Oswald Veblen. He and his wife Elizabeth donated Herrontown Woods as Princeton’s first nature preserve in 1957.
Grill, hotdogs, hamburgers, and refreshments provided. Supplementary potluck offerings of food/drink are encouraged.
In honor of Veblen’s mathematical work on trajectories, there will be places to play volleyball, badminton, and pingpong in a pastoral setting. Other activities include rock and banner painting for kids, along with tours of rain gardens, the horserun, and other features of the refurbished grounds.
Park in the Veblen House driveway at 474 Herrontown Rd, or in the main Herrontown Woods parking lot off of Snowden Lane, and walk up to the house (scroll down at this link for map). Facilities if needed are a short drive away at Smoyer Park.
