walk with an ecologist

Meet on North Heidelberg Road at the trail head next to Rt. 183, near Bernville at 9:00 a.m. on a Saturday morning. Then head south along Rt. 183 to view ongoing research into various invasive plants that are being eradicated by native organisms and plants that are not yet in the process. At the same time we will discuss the theory and practice to enhance this process. From there we will loop trail to Sheidy Road to view a mile-a-minute bed of several acres. Then we will head back to the cars at the start.
Total distance will be @ 7 miles with a long easy stretch at the beginning and moderate climbs in the second half. There is a 3 mile out and back option of flat trail for those who are interested.
For people who like showy native flowers there are beds of Rudbeckia laciniata, Ascelpius syrica, Verbisina alternifolia, Monarda fistulosa , and various Solidago sp.. Some of these should be full of butterflies and moths.
