At 7,730 acres, French Creek State Park is an integral part of the 114-square mile area designated by Natural Lands Trust as the Hopewell Big Woods. This is an area of great ecological and historical importance in Berks and Chester Counties in the Schuylkill River Watershed. Join us as we explore the forests of French Creek State Park in search of spring ephemerals, ferns, shrubs, and trees. Learn about the diversity of plant communities supported by the varied geology of the park, and see for yourself how human activities over the past 200 years have shaped this landscape.

We will meet at the Morris Arboretum and travel by van. Park in the meadow to the left of the entrance kiosk. Please bring your lunch and something to drink. Wear good walking shoes. This trip involves walking over uneven surfaces.
