More Trees Please

Blogger's Note: The following was provided by Montgomery County.

Lower Perkiomen Valley Park is hosting a series of Wednesday Walks, the sixth of which, “Trees,” will take place on Sept. 16, 2015 at 9 a.m. 

The program will meet in the Main Pavilion. 

Themed Wednesday Walks occur the third Wednesday of the month, April through October. 

The pace is leisurely over flat, paved trails, and all ages are welcome.

Bid farewell to summer, and welcome autumn with a walk among the arboreal giants in Lower Perkiomen Valley Park. 

Visitors will trek along the Perkiomen Creek to see colorful maple, black walnut, hickory, birch, and other trees, and learn how deciduous trees prepare for winter.

Participants will need sturdy walking shoes and water, and are encouraged to bring binoculars to view the treetops and river. Preregistration is preferred.

This free event will occur weather permitting. Lower Perkiomen Valley Park is located on New Mill Road in Oaks, PA, easily accessible from Egypt Road off Route 422. 

The park is open year-round, except for major holidays. For further information about this program or to preregister, please call 610-666-5371, or visit the website at
