Saturday, October 17, 2009
9:00 am – 12:30 pm
Join Natural Lands Trust (NLT) staff and Dr. Roger Latham (Continental Conservation) as we visit three grassland/meadow sites in northern Delaware and eastern Chester Counties and learn how they are established and managed to benefit wildlife and people. The trip will begin at Natural Lands Trust’s Hildacy Farm Preserve in Media where NLT has managed warm-season grass meadows for nearly a decade. We will then drive to a newly-planted meadow in Newtown Square to learn about the early stages of meadow establishment. The last stop on the field trip will be Pink Hill at Tyler Arboretum (Media), where we will see what a truly native grassland (serpentine barrens) looks like.
The cost for the field trip will be $25.
Please register by calling Brenda at 610-353-5640, ext. 243.
We will begin and end the trip at NLT’s Headquarters at Hildacy Farm Preserve, 1031 Palmers Mill Road, Media, PA.
