The species pages are detailed text descriptions of the animals, plants and fungi found on the Nature Trail. New pages are constantly being added (as fast as we can!).  The material contained in some of these pages was gathered in part by students in the spring ecology course at Penn State New Kensington.  All the material has been reviewed for accuracy and synthesized by Dr. William Hamilton, assistant professor of biology at Penn State New Kensington.  Any information contained in these pages may be freely used for academic purposes only. If you have questions or would like a bibliographic  source listing, contact Dr. Hamilton at 724-334-6717 or
