Who was Gifford Pinchot and why is his birthday celebrated every year at Grey Towers National Historic Site, Milford, Pike County?
Learn the answers to these and more on August 11, as you take a tour of his ancestral home (Grey Towers), enjoy free birthday cookies and attend a free lecture.
The USDA Forest Service leads tours every hour on the hour from 11 am to 4 pm. Tour fees are $8 per person; $7 for seniors; $5 youth and kids under 12 are free. Birthday cookies will be enjoyed after every tour.
