Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve- July 31, 2009

Fridays in July were quite nice for the first year fellows because of the field trip.  We took a trip to Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve north of Philadelphia on July 31st with Keelin Purcell, Dan Stern, and Dr. Lyons.  Amy Hoffmann, the Education Coordinator and a former fellow of the Program, guided us through the Preserve.  Many native flowers were blooming in the meadow at Bowman’s Hill and looked lovely.
