Written and drawn by Mandy Katz of Bartrams Gardens.
The field guide was made in order to mark our place in time, the ever changing landscape as a long unfolding story. The story of nature is always a story of change. My hope is that the field guide will inspire you to go out and have a look around and engage in the healing presence of the world around you.
How To Use: Some questions to ponder as you explore with your field guide: What is abundant or overly abundant? What is vulnerable and threatened? How can we support the land and people in healing themselves? How can we protect the river from further degradation?
How It's Made: The field guide was made through inspiration of the plants, trees and wildlife growing around the lower Schuylkill River Valley.
