Pine Grove Furnace State Park in Cumberland County – 2 p.m. for a three-mile hike.
In the past day, two new walks have come on board – one in Berks County and one in Beaver County.
We’re now back to 60 walks happening on October 1.
Unfortunately we’re lost access to our map-maker (school… sheesh), so we aren’t able to add them to the map, but the details are in the chart below the map.
And speaking of the map, based on the distribution of dots, we’ve got walks fairly well spaced across the state. If there’s not something happening right in your county, there’s something within an hour’s drive!
At this point, the weather looks lovely (did I just jinx us?). It should be a fabulous day to take to the woods! See you out there October 1!
There are 55 walks happening across the state on October 1. Plan to get out and show your support and interest in Penn’s Woods!
With some help from an undergrad at Penn State (thanks Charles!), we have a new map showing the locations of all the walks. They are fairly well-dispersed across the state. Click on the link at the top of the “Where Are the October 1 Walks Happening?” and you’ll see the map.
Please note: since the map was created, we lost the walks in Somerset and Carbon counties. So, if you were planning to head those directions, look for others nearby.
And for those who don’t choose to go on a scheduled walk, but instead plan to get out and appreciate Penn’s Woods on their own, we’d love to hear from you via our Facebook page. Let us know what you did to celebrate Penn’s Woods.
See you in the woods on October 1!
We’re holding steady at around 60 walks scheduled across the state, but the enthusiasm is tremendous!
We’re less than two weeks away. Make your plans to join us on a walk near you celebrating Penn’s Woods!
With the walks coming in over the last week, we are up to over 60 walks planned, with several more still in progress.
What a great opportunity to get out and learn about the woods and natural areas that make up so much of our state.
We hope you’re as excited as we are about this fun day in the woods!
See you soon!
We are up to 54 walks planned across the state! Check out the “Where Are the Walks Happening?” to see what’s happening near you. We are so grateful to all the landowners, agencies, and organizations who are working to make this happen.
Tell your friends, plan your family’s trip to the woods on October 1!
With the addition of walks in Tioga, Lycoming, Mercer, and McKean counties, we are up to 47 walks being offered across the state on October 1. Check out “Where Are the October 1 Walks Happening?” to see what’s been planned for a walk near you!
See you in the woods on October 1!
Every week we gain multiple walks. Today we updated the listing of the October 1 walks and added one more in Snyder and one on the Berks/Schuylkill border.
This statewide day of woods walks is drawing out a lot of interest, a lot of new partners, and a lot of fun opportunities to get people excited about Penn’s Woods!
We hope you’ve made your plans to join us in the woods on October 1 at a walk near you!
As of July 26, we are pleased to report that we have 41 walks currently confirmed across Pennsylvania. If you click on the tab “Where Are the Walks Happening?” at the top of the page, you’ll be able to see a table (alphabetized by county) of those walks offered to date.
We are excited by the new partnerships forming and breadth of support offered to get people out in Penn’s Woods and talking about the benefits of those woods to our health, communities, wildlife, clean water, clean air, and overall quality of life.
We hope you’ll join us too!
On May 17, we launched a 30-day campaign to raise funds to support the advertising and marketing of the statewide Woods Walks.
If you’re inclined to support this effort and help us get the word out, we encourage you to visit our fundraising site.
All contributions are tax deductible and will go directly to support the woods walks.
Help us make the Walk in Penn’s Woods a success!
