Johnson Creek Days- Crystal Springs Walking Tour
Sep 16, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join the Crystal Springs Partnership for a walk along the creek from bottom to top, highlighting past, present, and future enhancements and restoration of Crystal Springs Creek. It has been the better part of a decade since we hosted a walking tour, and a lot has happened since then! Our walk will include stops at the confluence with Johnson Creek, the Brannen Natural Area site, Westmoreland Park, followed by a peek at the creek as it passes Westmoreland Union Manor and the Eastmoreland Golf Course. We’ll stop at Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden, and finish up at Reed College Canyon.
