Walk and Talk with a Master Gardener

Friday, July 12, 2024 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Cost: Free

Join Penn State Master Gardeners for a leisurely one-hour walk to learn about some of the many perennials, shrubs, and trees in the Park. Gather inspiration for your garden and gain unique information about this local Park, by learning to identify these plants, some of their pollinators, other insects or diseases, and soil or location preferences. Plants also have ‘secrets’ and we’ll share some of them, such as being deer repellant, toxic or invasive. We are trained horticulturists and are eager to share our knowledge with you.

Feel free to provide a lawn chair for the discussions after our walk.  As gardeners, you may want to share some of your experiences with us at our Q-and-A period, during this time. You are encouraged to extend your experience at the Park, by taking a stroll through the woods and fields that surround the area of our walk.  Whether you are a serious gardener or outdoor enthusiast, you will find this Park to be a great place for a walk, get some fresh air, and relax!

Participants can choose to walk only a portion. This program is open to all ages, but all children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
