The Arboretum at Penn State

Gerhold Wildflower Trail Advisory Committee

The Arboretum’s Gerhold Wildflower Trail project was established in 2014 by a gift from Henry Gerhold in memory of Marilyn Quigley Gerhold. Project efforts are directed at establishment of a native wildflower trail within the Arboretum’s Hartley Wood, and oversight is provided by an advisory committee.
