Native beauty

It has been a very hot summer, but we can enjoy a cooling walk along the Lower Susquehanna River to glimpse the native hibiscus now in full bloom. We are very fortunate to have a stand of halberd-leaved rose mallow hibiscus growing at Brunner Island. These lovely hibiscus are native to Pennsylvania. PPL naturalist Jim Smith will be conducting a walk around the hibiscus area at Brunner Island on Friday, Aug. 20 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Join him on this informative walk and come see the beautiful rose-mallow (Hibiscus militaris) up close.
