For 2020, we are excited to offer a new week-long version of our popular Walk the Wissahickon event. Keeping in mind COVID guidelines and the safety of our participants and staff, we have modified the event so that small groups of walkers can experience different parts of our trail system throughout the week.
Join us to learn about one of the most important creatures of the forest (that most of us never see!). We will learn about why they are so important, the species that live in our area, and how we use them to monitor forest health.

With temperatures falling, and winter weather on the horizon come learn about the puddles that will soon form on the forest floor. These unassuming puddles—better known as vernal pools—provide a unique ecosystem for a variety of amphibians and invertebrates.
This is a unique hike for the serious hiker: an amazing loop-hike connecting various Wissahickon Trails-protected properties, and taking you from the creek through woods, fields and farm land. We will go through the Camp Woods Preserve, the Armentrout Preserve, the new Briar Hill Preserve, Prophecy Creek park, and the Willow Lake Farm Preserve - and of course the Green Ribbon Trail.
Learn how to create a safe haven for birds in your yard. We will discuss setting up a bird feeding station, how to prevent window collisions, and the top 10 plants that you can plant for birds.
One of our most unique and mysterious family of birds, owls are most active when the rest of us are settling down for the night. In this webinar we will go over unique adaptations that make these birds so amazing, which ones call our area home and how to increase your chance of seeing them.
