PLEASE NOTE THAT THE 7/29 PLANT ID WALK HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO POOR TRAIL CONDITIONS DUE TO ANTICIPATED FLOODING. REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED!
Join AeLin Compton, Community Initiatives Specialist at Philadelpia Parks & Recreation for a guided walk during which you will learn to identify plants and trees you see along the way; from common plants to those you can eat, and some in between! You'll leave this experience with some helpful basics in plant identification.
These walks will be about 1 mile long and taken at a slow pace to ensure participants have a chance to see and learn to identify a variety of plants and trees.
Please stay tuned - we will be announcing the locations of these walks a few weeks ahead of time to ensure an optimal array of interesting and identifiable plants and trees to discuss.
