In 1985 Harriet Feigenbaum planted three circles of willow trees around a pond formed from coal dust runoff in this strip mining site. Currently maintained as a wetland wildlife preserve, this project symbolizes Feigenbaum’s commitment to creating a harmonium between industry and nature. Current reports indicate the site is unkept.
