Remembering Paul W. Meyer

Friends of Pastorius Park is saddened to share the loss of dear friend and revered Pastorius Park restoration advisor, Paul Meyer. This is a tragic and huge loss for not only FoPP, but the horticultural community across the world. Paul played an invaluable role in the recent restoration and future preservation planning of Pastorius Park. We are so grateful for the lasting contributions he made in our community. To honor Paul and continue his farsighted work at Pastorius Park, FoPP is dedicating our next major project in the park’s Northeast Woods to Paul, as a memorial to his passion for restoring our park. Now more than ever, we need your support to complete this major project.
