TAKE A WALK IN THE BIG WOODS

This is just a reminder for the Big Woods Walk at Rider University this Friday afternoon at 3 pm at the tennis courts. More details and a campus map are linked off of this website: http://www.rider.edu/events/big-woods-walk/2017/04/21

There’s a chance of thunderstorms currently in the afternoon. If necessary, the event will move indoors to the auditorium in Sweigart Hall (rm 115).
Regardless of whether we’re indoors or outside, I have planned a program that will highlight the connections of this woods to Aldo Leopold with short presentations by Rider U. Faculty.
