Rippled by tender corescings from the submerged wings of waterfowl and enveloped by a sunset painted in sharp, warm yellows; a strong wind disturbing the otherwise still perennial wildflowers on an outlying hill. With that mental image tenderly framed, Stephen A. Forbes State Park should belong on the Forbes Power 100 list...if there were one for state parks (and there should be). This picturesque, three-thousand-acre expanse was an outdoor laboratory for the namesaked biologist, a revolutionary figure in wildlife biology. Here, he developed theories that would later shape the academic community into a more ecologically-sound, well-rounded body. So, by all means, let your inner conservationist strut proudly alongside Stephen A. Forbes State Park’s miles of snaking, well-manicured trails.
