Description
At the Holtwood location, ice scouring by the Susquehanna River has exposed a bedrock shoreline. This rare geologic occurrence creates habitat for many uncommon and rare rock loving plants. We will identify these plants and discuss their ecological associations. This is one of the region’s most fascinating botanic, ecologic and geologic occurrences. Be prepared for walking over uneven and rocky, but not difficult, terrain.
