About the photographer

TOWNSHIP TRUSTEE We are GOING GREEN! Westfield Washington Township has implemented a series of initiatives to promote environmentally-friendly practices and products. We believe we have an obligation to advance the Green Movement within our community. The Township recently improved lighting at our office and park through an energy efficient upgrade. With the lighting improvements, the Township avoided 5 tons of coal being burned per year and saved an equivalent to 3 acres of forest per year. We are also contributing to this initiative by reducing the use of paper. This Fall edition is the last OWWN quarterly program guide that will be mailed out to over 35,000 households. You will be able to view future OWWN guides on our website or you can get the guide emailed to you by signing up at westfieldwashingtontwp. us/list.aspx. Get outside and enjoy the colors! Sincerely,

The cover photos were taken at MacGregor Park by Isabelle Crum. Isabelle will be a sophomore at Westfield High School. She has enjoyed photographing nature and animals for the last several years. You can follow Isabelle on Instagram at Izcaptures.
