Raleigh Rescue mission
Another big project of the 1970's was landscaping the Raleigh Rescue mission.
The club planted 40 Dawn Redwoods in Pullen Park to commemorate the Bicentennial. They were planted on “Liberty Hill”… but 40 years means a lot of change in Raleigh! No one in the Park had heard of Liberty Hill. I walked all over and didn’t find them. AND THEN… driving home on Pullen Park Rd …. There they were. About 30 have survived.
It’s a lovely grove… almost an Alllee with the redwoods planted on each side of the path and then a few more on the hillock to your left. And they’ve grown! 3- 4 stories tall now!
