Exploring Plant Diversity in Nescopeck State Park
Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania
Sat, Jun 9, 2012, 8:30am - 4pm
Tickets: 75 members, $90 non-members
Nescopeck State Park is home to over 600 plant species occurring in diverse wetland, forest, and field habitats. We will walk leisurely throughout these habitats exploring for common and rare plant species. In particular, we will search for Carex polymorpha (variable sedge), which is globally rare, and other state rarities including Lonicera hirsuta (hairy honeysuckle), Lupinus perennis (blue lupine), and Lygodium palmatum (climbing fern). We will also encounter a plethora of more common plant species, which will hopefully include several blooming orchids. The visitor center at the park will serve as our base of operations. Park in the meadow next to the entrance kiosk. We will meet at the Arboretum and travel by small bus. Bring your lunch and something to drink.
Meet at 100 East Northwestern Avenue Philadelphia, PA In the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia
