Date & Time
Tuesday, July 24, 2018 - 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Thousands of native trees and shrubs were planted in the Nine Mile Run valley between 2004 and 2006 as part of the Nine Mile Run Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration. How many of these survived, what do they look like now, and how successful have they been at creating new habitat in the area?
Join us on July 24th at 6 pm for a Tree Discovery Walk as Erin Copeland, Senior Restoration Ecologist for the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, shares her many years of experience with this unique landscape. Learn how to identify common, and more unusual trees and shrubs, and which invasive species to avoid for the benefit of our wild places.
Just $10, but as always, Nine Mile Run members attend for free! Please register here to ensure that we save you a spot.
In case of inclement weather, please check our website, Facebook, and Twitter feeds for information. The event is rain or shine, but for everyone’s safety we cancel in case of thunderstorms!
