The Ripple, Volume 13 Issue 4

Before the present day park magazine, The Currentsย  there was The Ripple. Started in winter of 1991, The Ripple was as a source for regional nature and history based articles, along with an additional insert for seasonal programs. The magazine was published at the beginning of every season featuring a diverse collection of material such as drawings by local artists, poems by naturalists, and even the occasional recipe straight from the miller.
