Rachel Carson and Silent Springs Playgrounds

September 6th, 2015

These two neighboring playgrounds, along with the public school across the street, are named in honor of the conservationist Rachel Carson"a trained scientist with a poet's wonder" — and her groundbreaking 1962 work Silent Spring.

Man is a part of nature, and his war against nature is inevitably a war against himself.
