After the garlic mustard pulling came the celebration of former steward Roger Keller's life. Wife Cara Keller, daughter Karen and sons Mark and Greg, several grandchildren, and other family members and friends, all turned out to reflect on and honor Roger's memory and his work at Hidden Pond.
Kathy Wurster from FPCC Volunteer Resource Center came; so did Anne MacGlashan, former teacher at Reavis High who brought groups of students to Hidden Pond once a month for 18 years.
We heard a short voice recording of Roger speaking about Hidden Pond; we walked from the parking lot to the prairie; we scattered seed on the prairie. It was a good day, spent in the company of good people.
