Bowmans Tower Wildflower Preserve Fall 2018
. . .
As a gardener, aspiring ecologist, and plant lover I can't get enough information on native ecology to satisfy my curiosity. I'm grateful to have a number of local educational resources that work to provide and abundance of information to all age groups. If you're in the area, I hope you'll take advantage of the resources available at Bowman's Tower Wildflower Preserve in Buckscounty Pennsylvania. I wanted to share some of their events events in September 2018–their website is work visiting as they have numerous events nearly everyday.
