This book is an expression of gratitude for a beautiful place, Fitzgerald Lake in Florence, Massachusetts. All proceeds from sales will benefit the Broad Brook Coalition, a non-profit organization which manages The Fitzgerald Lake Conservation Area in collaboration with the Northampton Conservation Commission. The Coalition’s work is guided by its mission to preserve and expand the Fitzgerald Lake Conservation Area. Its responsibilities include trail maintenance, natural history education programs, pasture mowing, invasive plant control, native shrub planting, and water quality analysis on what is currently 852 acres of forest, meadow, wetland, and lake. All the poems in this book had their genesis in walks throughout the seasons at Fitzgerald Lake.
