“We are thankful to our host this year, Deerpath Farm, a neighborhood dedicated to thoughtful development, for welcoming us into their backyard for this celebratory gathering …. Both Deerpath Farm and Grainger embody this year’s theme, Natural By Design, by identifying, designing, enhancing and protecting natural features and systems wherever possible within their developments. They are excellent examples of how development can be accomplished in a thoughtful manner for the benefit of people and nature.” (excepted from the Welcome by Dave Neu, Executive Director, Conserve Lake County)
