627 Acres of Parkland Surrounds Finn Hill

627 Acres of Parkland Surrounds Finn Hill

Today, our parks are more critical than ever. They are an example of a shifting baseline also known as a sliding baseline. This is a type of change to how an eco system is measured, usually against previous reference points.  Our parks connect us with the natural world and inspire us to be better stewards of our planet. Explore their wonders, we live on Finn Hill nestled with over 627 acres of forest over our heads and under our feet.  Go outside this spring.
