Roswell’s Leita Thompson Park

October 12, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This walk is full, now taking wait list

Join us for a naturalist and photography walk at Roswell’s Leita Thompson Park. Leita Thompson (1884-1978) was one of the first female banking executives in the US. As a teenager she was a suffragette and became a strong supporter of working women at a time when women were discouraged from professional careers. She left her 107-acre forested retreat, later her home, to the City of Roswell dedicated as a park. The 2-mile loop trail includes hardwood forests, a stream with minor falls and a lake. 

Gittel Price, President of Women in Focus photography club, helps host our walk in one of her favorite walking and nature photography locations. Naturalist and photographer Kathryn Kolb (Eco-A) shares information on the forest ecology, trees and other species, and how we can learn much by seeing with our artist’s eye. We’ll have time to stop for photos in several locations.
