Presentation: Legacy of the Craighead Family

Overview
Locations

Join the Mechanicsburg Environmental Club for a presentation on the Craighead family. Tom Benjey, author of Glorious Times: Adventures of the Craighead Naturalists, will introduce you to one of the earliest families to settle in the Cumberland Valley. From their home along the Yellow Breeches Creek, the Craighead twins became known for their pioneering work in falconry and radiotelemetry in the South Mountain Cradle of Conservation and their sister, the Newberry Award-winning author Jean Craighead George, began her writing career.
