Mary Bomar, the newly appointed director of the National Park Service, is expected on island Dec. 1st to attend the ribbon cutting for a new permanent exhibit and garden in front of the Visitors Center in Cruz Bay. Local architects Glen Speer and Michael Milne, the Park Service, the Friends group and local businesses have worked together to create the exhibit to acknowledge the role of philanthropy in establishing the Park system.
Features of the garden include a stone wall (what else from a Speer project?), with a planter on top which blocks out a view of the parking area, There’s a shelter structure providing a shady place to sit and admire the garden populated with native plants. Landscaping advice was contributed by Eleanor Gibney and Gary Ray.
