Learn about the plants that make our watershed healthy with science educators from the Academy of Natural Sciences-and make a tree rubbing!
Plants and trees are not just beautiful to look at; they play an important role in keeping our creeks and streams healthy. For this workshop, we will learn about the riparian buffer, or the vegetated area next to a body of water that helps shade, protect, and clean the water. We’ll learn about particular plants and their role in watershed ecology, as well as the importance of trees. We’ll then have the opportunity to make rubbings of tree bark found in the buffer.
This workshop is part of the Mapping Our Watershed project. Please join us for a follow up workshop on Wednesday, July 12th from 6-8:30pm at Cheltenham Center for the Arts, where we will make prints with watershed plants!
