Preserving Bald Mountain has been a life time dream for Ginny.  Having grown up nearby it had always been a safe haven for her during stressful times and profoundly influenced her desire to become a naturalist.  Jack is the Stewardship Team Leader for the Preserve which unites the Bridge, Galbraith and Trappe parcels.  Photo by Wes Smith.
