Ever wondered what animals roamed your property? In this episode, we take a closer look at species that once resided in the Keystone State but can no longer be found here today. Tune in as we discuss past climate, habitat, and some reasons why these species are no longer present in our state.
Each month, we've been covering a Pennsylvania state symbol. This month we're discussing the Eastern Hemlock (Tsuga canadensis). Found in the cool, moist, habitats of ravines and northern facing slopes, the tree is struggling to hold its ground thanks to a formidable pest. Listen in as we talk about habitat, pests, how the tree became a state symbol, and so much more.
Join us as we discuss watershed impairment, watershed assessments, the county action plan, and dig into 2 special focus areas; Hop Bottom Creek and Starrucca Creek.
