Whether referred to as Ballston Creek (in the present day and on the maps we use) or, as the Native Americans called it, Shenantaha (meaning “deer water”), this clear-flowing stream is scenic and serene…

Just another reminder to take time each week for a peak inside a woodland or meadow near you to enjoy the continuing colorful emergence of wildflowers on Mother Nature’s stage.
