Royersford residents to take a walk on the wild side

March 27, 2018 by  

Royersford residents who would like to learn more about the native plants and other wild flora that can be found in their local area have been offered a chance to be included in an activity that will allow them to do just that.

Lock 60 in Mont Clare will be the site for a spring Wildflower Walk, which is open to anyone age eight and over. It will follow trails along the Schuylkill River, and cross a ravine, hill and bluffs.

The excursion will be led by Dave Williams, who is a member of the Schuylkill Canal Association (SCA) and is knowledgeable about the different plants that can be found in the area. The event’s listing noted that the route is moderately difficult, and the walk will last for approximately one and a half hours.

Those who wish to participate are asked to register ahead of time, and they will meet at the Locktender’s House before heading out. Any children who wish to take part will need to be accompanied by an adult. Flyer printing can be used to create materials that promote an event like this to the local community.

The Wildflower Walk has been organized for May 20, and it scheduled to begin at 1:00 pm. Anyone who would like to add their name to the list of attendees can do so by visiting the SCA’s website.
