“Spotted lanternfly (SLF), Lycorma delicatula, is an invasive planthopper, native to Asia, that was first detected in 2014 in southeastern Pennsylvania. It feeds voraciously on many plants, including economically important crops like fruit trees, grapevines, hops, hardwoods, and ornamentals. If you think you have SLF, do not panic! First, make sure the insect you are seeing is the spotted lanternfly. Second, learn about its life cycle and habits. Third, determine what plants it is infesting and what it is not. Fourth, employ management strategies at the proper time of the year.”

There is plenty going on at the park. Join us for Work Day weekends every other weekend where groups of volunteers meet up to help maintain our beautiful green space here in the park. Come by, enjoy the sunshine, and get to know the neighbors.
High School Park is now also home to a farmer’s market every Sunday from 10 to 1 PM. Get some local farm fresh food, plus a variety of other treats and local delicacies. More information can be found on our Farmers’ Market page.
Our next Workday Weekend will be August 10th & 11th. Our weekly Farmer’s Market continues this Sunday (8/4). Hope to see you there.
We had another great day at Arts in the Park. The weather was nearly perfect until the end. It was a great day and lovely to see so many people from the community out together.
Check back soon for more pictures and information on how the fundraiser did.
