2021 Programs 

*Thursday February 18, 2021 at 7:00 pm 
The Homeowners Guide to Managing the Spotted Lanternfly with Sam Barnett, Penn State Master Gardener (Online Program)

The Spotted Lanternfly (SLF), Lycoma deliculata, is an invasive insect that has spread throughout southeastern Pennsylvania since its discovery in Berks County in 2014. The potential for economic damage and residential property destruction is substantial.

We’ll cover how you can identify the insect at each growth stage, the potential destruction that it causes, and what you can do to minimize its impact on your property.

Our presenter will be Penn State Master Gardener, Sam Barnett. Sam has been gardening for decades and has been a Master Gardener since 2009.  He is the lead educator on Spotted Lanternfly for Delaware County and has been intimately involved in the program for the past several years.

This program is Co-Hosted by Radnor Memorial Library. REGISTER HERE https://delcolibraries.libcal.com/event/7497516

Thru-Hiking The Colorado Trail, Twice, 31 Years Apart with Eric Janson (Online Program)

Eric backpacked the Colorado Trail in in 1989, and is one of the first 15 people on record to have completed a Thru-hike of the trail.  After this hike he did some sporadic backpacking trips with friends, and many weekend trips with his sons in Scouting.  In 2016 he began doing Thru Hikes again, starting with a relatively short 83 mile loop trail.  In 2020 he backpacked the Colorado Trail a second time with his 17 year old son.
