Last week we ventured out with Jason Lubar (Associate Director of Urban Forestry) to explore the Wissahickon Valley Park. We eagerly set out on the trail on a humid Tuesday afternoon. Despite the heat, everyone had smiles on their faces as we walked under the sunlit, green canopy and listened to Jason share his knowledge on the surrounding trees, soil, and rock formations. Some attentive interns even noticed a funnel-web spider, tucked away in its perfect tunnel-like home. We took a halfway break at the Spring Mill Covered Bridge and admired the last covered bridge in Philadelphia.

Stay tuned for more news from the interns!
