Join us for one of French & Pickering’s most popular events of the year! Environmental educator and naturalist Colleen Cranney will kick-off the event with a walk through the Thomas P. Bentley Nature Preserve. The walk will begin at the Preserve’s Upper Meadow (near Anna’s Oak) at 3:00 PM.
Post-walk, attendees will gather to make ornaments from pinecones coated in peanut butter and seeds, and then hang them on the tree to provide food for birds throughout the winter season.
Refreshments will be served around a campfire during the official tree lighting at sunset (approximately 4:10 PM).
The Thomas P. Bentley Nature Preserve is 108-acres of mosaic woods, fields, wetlands and stunning scenery, and contains over 3 miles of trails through rolling and varied terrain for exploration. Recognized as a “Birding Hot Spot” by the Valley Forge Audubon Society, 135 bird species have been observed at the Preserve.
Fun for all ages!
