Susquehanna Riverlands to host the PA Woodmobile for Arbor Day

This Arbor Day PPL is hosting the Pennsylvania Woodmobile, a traveling exhibit that provides information on the state’s forest resources and the state’s forest products industry. Check it out from 3-6 p.m. Thursday, April 28, at PPL’s Susquehanna Riverlands.

Tour the Woodmobile to learn how the forests of Pennsylvania have shaped the history of the state and nation. Find out how today’s forest differs from 100 years ago, touch the various hardwood species produced in Pennsylvania and see how deer affect the forest. You can also discover more about Pennsylvania’s forest products industry, see how products are made, learn how the forest is managed in a sustainable fashion, and experience how common and unusual forest products touch our lives every day.

At 5 p.m. a formal presentation about the history of Penn’s woods as well as information about some of the invasive threats to our woodlands will be given. This free program will be held at the Susquehanna Energy Information Center. For more information, please call 1-866-832-3312 or email pplpreserves@pplweb.com.
