House Rock BC1 Orchard Assessment — volunteers needed

October 12 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


Join Sara Fitzsimmons and Tim Eck at the House Rock BC1 Orchard to take measurements. These trees have had their genomes fully sequenced, and now we need to take the phenotypic data to compare to the underlying genetic information. This event would mainly be looking at trees and giving them a ranking for 13 different metrics on about 100 trees and recording that on a data sheet. Attendees will be working groups of  2 or 3.

Date: Tuesday, October 12, 2021
Time: (9:00 AM – 3:00 PM) Come for all or part of the day
Location: House Rock BC1 Orchard, Pequea, PA
Description: Measuring trees and writing down the data from selected individuals — No equipment is necessary; just bring water, snacks, and/or lunch if you’re staying a while.

To volunteer please email Sara Fitzsimmons at sff3@psu.edu
