Montgomery Friends of Open Space presents another fun “First Sunday” event in their series in October. Sarah and Larry will help us identify the wide variety of trees in the Montgomery Park Arboretum as we look for the first signs of Fall color.

Sarah Roberts is an advisor to Montgomery Township’s Shade Tree Committee, Environmental Commission, and Open Space Committee, in addition to being the president of Montgomery Friends of Open Space (MFOS). She is also a member of the Native Plant Society of New Jersey. She plants and tends native plants in several public gardens around town, and she advocates for native plants every chance she gets.

Larry Koplik has been planting trees on his property in Harlingen since 1986. He has been a member of the Shade Tree Committee since 1997 and chair since 2007, in which capacities he has helped plan, plant and maintain the Arboretum since its founding in 1997.
