Join us for a tree walk in Glen Providence Park, in the 80th anniversary year for this Bird Sanctuary and Arboretum! We will be led by Dr. David Hewitt, who regularly leads tree walk in Philadelphia, and led our first tree walk in January 2012. He is a lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania, a research associate at the Academy of Natural Sciences, and does a fair bit of work developing education and outreach programs on agriculture and the environment, “and other sciencey things.”
