HISTORY: This urban wilderness became public property in 1971 after local residents and community activists worked together in an effort to save this beautiful area from development. Now, more than four decades later, Tree Hill has expanded its original mission to include nature and energy conservation education and sustainable living practices. Tree Hill provides the best in hands-on learning to more than 30,000 visitors each year.
