Saturday was a chilly, sometimes cloudy morning as The Wintergreen Nature Foundation honored the individuals whose vision shaped the Wintergreen community. Our Christina Kline attended the dedication and sent back these pictures from the ceremony.

According to TWNF:
“The Nature Foundation constructed an exhibit celebrating the insight of Wintergreen’s founders, forever reminding the community that the nature of Wintergreen is its greatest asset. This exhibit gives visitors an interpretive tour of the natural beauty found at Wintergreen a midst a garden of native wildflower, ferns and shrubs. The overlook on Wintergreen has been known as the Wintergreen Overlook, after May 10th, 2008 this overlook will be renamed Wintergreen Founders Vision Overlook.”
After the dedication a reception followed at The Trillium House.
