Let Enchanted Gardens be your host as you canoe through the spectacular and historic Catskill Mountains and Susquehanna river basin of South Central New York State. Your excursion will take you through the homeland of the ancient Algonquins and the powerful Iroquois Nation. The islands south of Afton (once called Connahunta by the Native Americans) were used by the Indians for raising corn, and many artifacts of this long gone civilization have been found there and elsewhere along the river.
Enchanted Gardens has years of experience in renewing natural wetlands that have been lost or degraded, creating new wetlands, and producing new ecosystems.
Enchanted Gardens can take care of all your professional landscape design and construction needs. We stock hundreds of perennials, shrubs, trees, and vines. See our greenhouse filled with hanging baskets and annuals. We also offer a full line of beautiful fresh floral arrangements suitable for any occasion which may be purchased in the store or through our new on-line store.
Many types of trees grow in Pennsylvania's vast forests, but the sweetest tree of all is the sugar maple. It's the sap from this tree that has been used for more then 20 years to make Loch's pure maple syrup and Loch's other maple products.
Imagine a park where you could travel through miles of scenic rural settings on foot, on bicycle, on cross country skis, or perhaps on horseback without having to worry about the hazards and noise of motorized vehicles. It may sound like a dream, but communities across the U.S. have made dreams like this a reality by converting over 10,000 miles of abandoned railways into safe and attractive public trails.
Here in Broome County NY, just a short drive from Binghamton, there is an abandoned railway corridor which runs along the beautiful Susquehanna River from Nineveh, through Colesville and Windsor south to the Pennsylvania border a distance of approximately 15 miles. Passengers who traveled this route back in the days of steam locomotives were treated to lovely views of the river and the surrounding hills, forest, and farmland. The trains are gone, but the corridor remains, and with some work and foresight, it could be preserved and enjoyed by all as we move into the twenty-first century.
The 810th AC&W Squadron page is is a personal site I did to memorialize the 810th Radar Squadron, a facility I served at during the 1960's. I'm hoping other folks who served there will enjoy the photos and stories they find on this site.
The 810th site served as my test a new Macintosh only web page layout tool called Sandvox by Karelia Software. If you are a Macintosh user and wish to create simple personal websites, I recommend checking this application out. It has a lot of potential.
