Perimeter Walk

The Preserve would look very different without our 10-foot-tall deer fence. Have you ever wondered what lies along the edge of such a significant perimeter that encompasses nearly 100 acres of pristine and diverse woodland habitat? Join Naturalist Les Swartley as he takes you on an excursion around our boundary to study the contrast between our grounds and the neighboring landscapes. This is a rigorous walk requiring a good degree of balance. Dress for weather and wear sturdy hiking shoes appropriate for possible wet terrain. Registration required by Oct. 5. »

Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve | Flower to Tower Hike

Members-Only Flower to Tower Hike

Preserve Members are in for a special treat! Naturalist guides lead the way for this early morning walk from our Visitor Center to Bowman’s Hill Tower. Along the way, we’ll discuss the interesting plants and habitats we encounter. Then, we’ll venture to the top of the tower to experience the spectacular view of the surrounding landscape. We will end our journey with a sweet autumn treat of donuts and cider. Please note, the walk is steep and strenuous at the top of Bowman’s Hill; bring your own water. The hike is held weather permitting. This event is free and open to Preserve members; however, registration is required by October 2. »

Mushroom Walk

Many plant-focused people are not aware of the important roles that fungi, including mushrooms, play in the lives of plants. There would be no land plants were it not for the fungi that nourish them! Marion Kyde, Ph.D., will cover a few of the amazing things that you probably don’t know about fungi, along with photos of the colorful and unusual macrofungi in our woods and fields. Much of the information will be about new research which is telling even mycologists what they don't know about fungi. For ages 15 and up. Marion M. Kyde, Ph.D., lives in Tinicum Township in the middle of a woods full of magical (not magic) mushrooms. She has lectured locally on mushrooms for 20 years and writes for the Tinicum Conservancy Newsletter and the Bucks County Herald on environmental and local issues. An award-winning and pioneering conservationist, Marion received her bachelor’s, masters and doctorate degrees from Rutgers University and currently serves as the vice chair on the Tinicum Township Land Preservation Committee. »
