FRIENDS OF JOHN DEAN PARK SOCIETY

Newsletters & Circulars – updated for 2017

Anyone interested in the parks post-1980 history, will find the newsletters most fascinating. They contain a wealth of information – previous park issues, history and nature articles; they truly explore the fundamental accomplishments and mission of the Friends.

For public access, in 2009, the Friends donated their correspondence and newsletters to the Sidney Archives.

As part of preserving history and acquainting future volunteers with the issues, the John Dean Nature House & Archive maintains “the complete set” which is available at cost; contact Jarrett.
