Winter Tree Walk
Love trees? We sure do- which is why we are excited to welcome Dr. David Hewitt to explore the trees in Glen Providence Park!
David Hewitt regularly leads tree walks in Philadelphia. 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”. He also does some work as a microbial geneticist and a consultant on sustainable development.
We think it is natural he would like to check out Glen Providence Park, which was dedicated as an arboretum in 1935, and was appreciated by naturalists long before that! This will be David’s first visit to the park, so we will start with a 5 minute intro to the park, including some historical photos of its trees. Then we will explore the park’s trees along some of the trails.
