Event Time:
10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Sat. Oct. 16 - Trees: Their Leaves and Bark

Rock Creek is an important tributary of the Tookany Creek. It is also the site of improvements made by volunteers of the TTF Watershed. We’ll walk there to see what has been done, and to discuss why leaves change colors in autumn, why some trees keep their “leaves” – a.k.a. needles – and why others don’t. How can a tree be identified by its bark? Which trees do those Spotted Lanternflies like best and what can we do about them? Meet at Rock Lane Park: Take Rock Lane from the Corner of Church Road and Chelten Hills Drive. Street parking.
