> "Explore the Plant of the Wissahickon" was designed with the blind and visually impaired in mind.This will be a first-hand experience of the diversity of forest plants and some of their defining characteristics.
> First there will be a short indoor session introducing some of the plants of the Wissahickon, focusing on the use of texture, smell, and shape as keys to plant identification. Then there will be a short hike to put this knowledge into practice, examining plants as we follow a gravel road and a paved trail along a small stream to the Wissahickon Creek. See details below.
