LOVE Your Park – Hemlock Walk

May 20 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Pennsylvania’s state tree, the eastern hemlock, is a familiar sight in the Wissahickon. There used to be even more. This magnificent tree is declining due to climate change and introduced pests. This will be a trip to observe wildlife like Acadian flycatchers and red squirrels to learn about the trees. We will talk about the hemlock, its challenges, the ecosystem it supports, the insects and birds associated with it and how FOW and Philadelphia Parks & Recreation are working to save our trees. Free.

Please register in advance!
To register call 215.685.9285 or e-mail wec@phila.gov.
