ALT 2019 Collaboration! #1: Plant Pursuit~ First Life of Spring

  • 600 Scene Ridge Road McKeesport, PA, 15133 United States (map)

Join myself and a member of the Allegheny Land Trust as we take a guided hike of Dead Man's Hollow Conservation area! Together we will share about the property as we look for the early plants of spring!

Did you know the tiny, seed-filled leaves you see sprouting up in early spring are called "cotyledons"? A large part of learning plant identification is visiting each plant throughout the growing season to note their wildly changing characteristics through time. Learn much more as we explore the habitats of this unique green space.

Cost is $5/person. Please pre-pay before the event so we know who to expect! If this is any issue for you, let me know. Tickets can be purchased here:

Wear good hiking shoes and bring a camera and your favorite field guide if you have one! Program runs for 1 hour, rain or shine.
