Adrian Colarusso ~
Friends of Herrontown Woods Board Member
In episode 39 of the Princeton Podcast, our host, Mayor Mark Freda, welcomed Adrian Colarusso, a Board Member of the Friends of Herrontown Woods, Princeton’s first dedicated nature preserve.
In addition to discussing the history of Herrontown Woods and the founding of the Friends of Herrontown Woods, Adrian described its mission and vision to restore and maintain the preserve’s trails and flora; to teach and learn about its natural and cultural heritage; and to build a center for people of all ages to creatively engage with nature, art, and history. All to honor the legacy of Oswald and Elizabeth Veblen, who gave their land and homes to create Princeton’s first nature preserve.
