  1. Living History Sundays at Pottsgrove Manor

    August 25, 2019, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM @ Pottsgrove Manor

    Bring everyone in the family to take part in hands-on history at Pottsgrove Manor. Take a turn to churn cream into butter. Learn how to weave colorful strings into useful tape on a loom. See the tools of the leather-smith trade in action as hide is transformed into pouches and bags. Join the cook in the reproduction kitchen to uncover an 18th century dish brought to life and stroll through the kitchen garden to find the plants colonists would use for food and medicine. Everyone can try their hand at period toys and games to complete their historic experience. Each weekend brings different historic skills to life so check the Pottsgrove Manor website or call (610) 326-4014 to see which days you would like to visit.

Parks Events

  1. Butterfly Celebration

    August 24, 2019, 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM @ Upper Schuylkill Valley Park

    Come and help us celebrate this amazing little insect - the butterfly! This annual program will include information on tagging, feeding, and raising butterflies. This year the park will be hosting Sandra Sweeney, Master Gardener, from the Montgomery County Penn State Extension. Sandra will be sharing her knowledge about planting your butterfly garden with native plants and common cooking herbs. There will be hands-on activities for the kids and much more. If the weather allows, we will be releasing the tagged monarchs at the end of the program so they can begin their migration south. In the event of inclement weather, activities will be reduced.
