PA Native Species Hike at Ridley Creek SP

How to find us: Enter the park from Gradyville Road. Once in the park, follow the signs to the park office, which is Hunting Hill Mansion, and meet in the upper parking lot. If using GPS, enter these coordinates to take you directly to the meeting location: +39.95076, -75.45191

Many plants, animals, insects, and pathogens that are not native to Pennsylvania have been introduced into the environment, either deliberately or accidentally, and those that have become invasive pose a huge threat to the biodiversity of native flora and fauna in our ecosystem.  Join us for a DCNR naturalist-led hike to identify and discuss those species which are native to our local area and which are non-native and/or invasive, and learn how to help protect and enhance wildlife habitat in your own backyard.

This hike will last 2 hours on uneven natural surface trails which may be muddy, so good footwear is necessary.  Bring water and binoculars if you have them.  Registration is not required.  There are portable restrooms on site at the mansion parking lot where we meet.
