Mornings in the Meadow (Summer) August 9, 2023
Nectar and pollen from our native meadow plants such as the aster family and goldenrods (Solidago spp.) fuel the lives of our native pollinators throughout autumn. Join one of our seasoned naturalists for a guided tour of our 6.4-acre meadow to learn about meadow ecology and plant-pollinator interactions. The naturalist leading this invigorating walk will meet participants at the James Moore Pavilion. For ages 10 and up.
Rick Anderson has been a Preserve naturalist for over 13 years and has led guided meadow walks for the past 5 years. He’s a scout merit badge counselor for nature, forestry and environmental science. He and Paula Walter have volunteered together at local schools, teaching students about watersheds, water quality and ecosystems. Anderson hosted a public video recording on our meadows, showcasing the ecosystem of wet, moist and dry areas that each support different plant and animal communities.
Paula Walter is a property steward and naturalist for several Bucks County education organizations. She has worked to install, maintain and monitor both large-scale and backyard meadows. Walter is an advocate for the importance of meadows in a healthy environment and finds the Preserve’s meadow ecosystem both fascinating and beautiful.
