6/23/2012 Pond Walk!
Join us as we explore the plant and animal life at the pond in Glen Providence Park! The pond was created in 1936, primarily for fishing and ice skating. It hosts an array of wildlife, including Muskrats, Bullfrogs, Pickerel Frogs, American Toads, Green Herons, Belted Kingfishers, Fishing Spiders, and plenty of fish, turtles, and dragonflies.
Pond Walk- for kids of all ages!

This Pond Walk will be led by Aura Lester, known as Mrs. Lester to her Great Valley High School science students. With a degree in biology, Aura’s career experiences include environmental educator in Philadelphia and research assistant in Alaska(!). She has been teaching biology and environmental science to high school students for the past 8 years.
We won’t walk in the pond (there are Snapping Turtles in there!), but we may cool our feet in Broomall’s Run. Join us!
RSVP by emailing FriendsoftheGlenATgmail.com so we know how many to expect.
Be prepared for uneven (possibly wet) terrain: wear shoes that can get wet, bring binoculars and cameras if you’d like, and of course bring your curiosity!
While we welcome leashed dogs to many of our park events, this time we will be looking for skittish turtles and other pond life, so please leave those cuties at home.
