Spring Equinox in the Wissahickon with Kris Soffa, PA Master Naturalist

March 19 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Meet at Cedars House Cafe

Welcome Spring with a walk in the Wissahickon. We’ll find signs of emerging new growth everywhere. The woods echo with birdsong, spring ephemerals bloom, and trout splash in the Creek. Swelling tree buds and newly opened leaves bathe our deciduous woods in a gorgeous chartreuse haze. Why not get your dose of nature and join us for this energizing walk?

Distance: 2 Miles

Registration is recommended for all hikes (required if indicated) so that participants can be informed of weather or other emergency cancellations.
