Tues., Aug 14th, 7 pm – 9 pm.  Public Meeting:  “The Towers of West Creek.”  The many radio and TV transmission towers in the Parma-Seven Hills area collectively known as the Parma Antenna Farm have – and continue to - greatly impacted local land conservation efforts.  Longtime broadcasting professional Ted Alexander and Engineer Al Warmus share their tales of these towers and the how-&-why they were built here.  Meet at the West Creek Stewardship Center at West Creek Reservation, Parma.
