Watching the construction of the new Nature Center helps bring the fond images back. Walking at Oak Point was a stress relief strategy while I was managing the care and feeding of my elderly father. It's still difficult to get beyond the images of that angry, frail, fading, falling father to find the good memories of my beloved Dad. I loved visiting construction sites with Dad as a kid.
What's the concept behind the building's rain chains and galvanized tanks for rain water collection? There are at least three of the tanks around the building, two flanking the main entrance, and one on the end of the office wing.
