Invasive Species Hunt and Hike

Join us for a late spring hike to identify common non-native invasive plants like garlic mustard, multiflora rose, various honeysuckles, oriental bittersweet and more.  We will also look at the ‘Tree-of-Heaven’ and its relationship to the spotted lanternfly.  We’ll meet in the Monument Parking Lot for a moderate hike and learn how you can help keep our forests and wetlands healthy and clean.  Wear a sturdy pair of shoes and bring a pair of work gloves so we can tackle some of the intruders we find.  In case of heavy rain, the hike will be canceled.  Program sponsored by the Blue Mountain Wildlife Inc. in partnership with the Berks County Parks and Recreation Department.
