On the Green Road: Grey Towers

About the author: While Karen Reshkin of our Chicago office enjoys her vacation, she’s sending along environmentally relevant thoughts and pictures.

Milford, PA: The view from Grey Towers, home of James Pinchot, the first Chief of the US Forest Service. The mansion itself is amazing. It was donated to the USFS in 1963. It’s a key site in the history of conservation in the US.
