Digging into the Landscape Around Us
Unique Features of Our Region
Come out to Goodell Gardens to learn about what makes Northwestern Pennsylvania so unique! Although many of us have become accustomed to our geographic region, we often overlook many of its distinctive features. What forces have shaped our region’s landforms, and how do our gardens fit within the local landscape and climate? We will explore the answers to these questions and more. Three engaging sessions will enhance participants’ awareness of the local watersheds, soils, and microclimates.
Session 1: Landforms and Watersheds – Saturday, June 19; Monday, June 21
Session 2: All About Soils – Sunday, June 27; Monday, June 28
Session 3: Hardiness and Microclimates – Sunday, July 4; Monday, July 5
Afternoon Sessions: Sundays (or Saturdays) from 2:00-3:00 pm
Evening Sessions: Mondays from 7:00-8:00 pm
Admission to Special Programs is free for members of Goodell Gardens, or a $5 suggested donation from folks who aren’t yet members. Want to join? Click here.
