Come and take a Walk in Penn’s Woods and enjoy the colors of fall at Greenwood Furnace State Park, on Sunday, October 6. Rangers John and Louie will lead the walk through the woods around the park. The walk will be moderate, and travel about a mile. People-friendly leashed pets are allowed; owner must clean up after their pets. This is not a wheelchair and stroller friendly walk.
Greenwood Furnace is one of more than 50 sites across the state where Pennsylvanians of all ages will be getting out in the woods, building appreciation for the forest and the importance of caring well for them. The trees and ground cover provide nutrients for the soil, food and homes for wildlife, clean air and water, wood products that we use daily, and peace and tranquility for us to enjoy.
The 2019 Walk in Penn’s Woods organizing partners include the Pennsylvania Forestry Association, The Center for Private Forests at Penn State, Penn State Forestry and Wildlife Extension, Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Pennsylvania Forest Stewards, the Pennsylvania Chapter of the Association of Consulting Foresters, and the Pennsylvania Sustainable Forestry Initiative.
The hike will begin at the Visitor Center at 1 pm, and will last about an hour, and will be about a mile in length. NOTES: Be sure to wear sturdy shoes, and bring a snack and a bottle or two of water.
