Meet the Fall Forest: 1pm - 2:30pm
Join Dr. Sacchi from Kutztown University to learn to identify common trees and fall flowering plants at Hawk Mountain as fall arrives. During a casual walk, learn about plant ecology, fruits and seeds produced by many plants in fall, and a variety of traits that prepare plants for the winter ahead.
