As a winter project my son and I plan to explore the 16 preserves that are highlighted in the Field Guide to Natural Lands Trust Preserves.
The Field Guide is a pocket handbook that comes as a benefit of membership in Natural Lands Trust. There is a tear off page at the back; visit these sixteen preserves, record the "code word" posted at each preserve's information kiosk, and send it in for a free gift.
Although I have worked at Natural Lands Trust for 19 years there are just a couple preserves that I have never visited.
Yesterday, however, we went back to my old stomping grounds in Middletown Township, Delaware County. We saw this beautiful white oak at the Wawa Preserve.
