The Board of Directors of the Friends of Highland Recreation Area would like to welcome the public to the 2013 FOHRA Annual Meeting and Social. Our yearly event showcases FOHRA’s volunteer activity at Edsel and Eleanor Ford’s former Haven Hill estate within the Highland State Recreation Area.
This year’s meeting will be highlighted by an informative presentation “Native Beauty: Landscapes Designed by Jens Jensen for the Ford family in Southeast Michigan” presented by Professor Robert E. Grese, Director of the Matthaei Botanical Gardens and Nichols Arboretum in Ann Arbor, and Professor, School of Natural Resources and Environment at the University of Michigan. Famed landscape architect Jens Jensen was employed by the Fords to sculpt the Haven Hill lands and gardens during the estate’s creation in the 1920’s.
In addition to Professor Grese’s presentation, a FOHRA 2013 highlights video slideshow, and other informative and enjoyable Haven Hill displays, will be presented during the evening.
Stay tuned for more details....
