Would you like to control stormwater on your own property? During this one-hour webinar, Dr. Welker from Villanova University will discuss several types of green stormwater infrastructure that are practical for homeowner use, what factors to consider when selecting and planning green stormwater infrastructure, and what ongoing maintenance and work is needed to keep the system operating at maximum capacity.
Take a tour of Montgomery County's only water-powered gristmill and experience many hands-on, family-friendly demonstrations.
Aerial insectivores – swallows, nighthawks, martins, flycatchers, and swifts – are showing some of the greatest population declines among birds, and it’s unclear exactly why. Chimney swifts, whose populations have declined by 52% in PA over the last 60 years, serve as a “canary in the coal mine” for this suite of species. This presentation will cover their life histories, theories surrounding the reasons for decline and what you can do about it, as well as recent collaborative work among researchers seeking both to create habitat for swifts and to identify the drivers of population change.
Join Harm Scherpbier on an exploration of the Green Ribbon Trail from Ambler Borough. Hike along the trail as well as along the Wissahickon Waterfowl Preserve. This hike will show you how to connect from Ambler Township to Lower Gwynedd trails to the Green Ribbon Trail.
Join us (in person or virtually) to help document the species on our preserves using iNaturalist. A BioBlitz is a community-science effort to record as many species within a designated location and time period as possible. We have designated 5 preserves that we are targeting to collect species information from, so grab your phone or camera and start observing.
Join us for an easy, family friendly bird walk at Willow Lake Farm. This walk will be focused on those just starting out watching birds, but all skill levels are welcome. We will cover some important how tos, such as using binoculars and how to identify some common birds of our area.
Take a tour of Montgomery County's only water-powered gristmill and experience many hands-on, family-friendly demonstrations, including tin smithing, grinding corn, corn husk doll making, and an ice cream social!
We look forward to gathering together in-person this fall to see our friends and to make new connections.
