Clifton Walking Tour

posted Mar 26, 2017, 7:07 PM by Cressie Hill


Saturday, April 22, 2017, 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.


Join us for a walking tour of the Clifton neighborhood, starting at the historic 1883 building on the grounds of the American Printing House for the Blind. On the two-hour walking tour, we’ll find evidence of the evolution of the area from a sparsely populated rural community in 1830 to a densely settled urban Louisville neighborhood. The event is free, but registrations are required. Call 502-899-2213 or email kcarpenter@aph.org to register. Best for older children and adults.

China Berry Vine Removal at Barret Traditional Middle School

posted Oct 16, 2016, 4:35 PM by Lara Zuber

China Berry Vine Removal at Barret Traditional Middle School

Saturday, October 22nd, 9:00 – 11:00 am

 

Please join the Crescent Hill Community Council and the Crescent Hill Garden Club as we work to eradicate the invasive China Berry vines at Barret Traditional Middle School. The ongoing efforts have produced great results in clearing of overgrowth and freeing of the trees!  This event will also involve volunteer children and parents from the school.  We hope for a large turnout for one final push before winter.  Our goal is to free two additional trees of the vines and to maintain areas previously cleared.  The work is hard but a great workout and is extremely rewarding.

 

We will meet on Galt Avenue at the steps to the Peterson-Dumesnil House. Bring your gloves, pruners, weed eaters, etc. We would encourage long pants and long sleeves for basic protection and to guard against Poison Ivy and Oak. The chain saws will be running @ 8:30 to get ahead and all helpers are welcome even if you can only give an hour. If you have any questions, please call Judy Gogan at 889-1899.

 

This is a work at your own risk as the school is not liable for any injuries, so work safely!
