Berks Nature Presents: Native vs. Invasive

May 31 @ 6:30 P.M.

What are trees role in nature? What animals depend on them? How do WE depend on them? What threats do our neighbors, the trees, face?

In keeping with the Longwood Gardens Community Read Program, Miss Tara will introduce The Songs of Trees by David George Haskell, a book that takes us into the worlds of a dozen different trees across the globe. Then we will join a Delaware Nature Society Naturalist as he tells the stories of the trees near us and how they all fit into nature’s grand scheme. 

*Best enjoyed by ages 8-adult.

*ALL attendees – whether at the Library or over Zoom – will be entered to win one of three 4-person passes to Longwood Gardens.
