Hiking is more than putting on a pair of boots and walking in the woods. It’s a lifelong recreational activity that can increase one’s stamina, endurance, and athleticism. It’s also the basis of numerous other recreations including backpacking, orienteering, and geo-caching. 

Learn how to enable your students to discover Penn’s Woods through an interdisciplinary set of lessons created by the PA Bureau of State Parks. Lessons focus on health, fitness, and trip planning; map reading and identifying local trails; forest ecology as well as nature journaling. The lessons address several PA Physical Education & Health academic standards as well as standards for Geography, Science & Ecology, and the Humanities.     

The course is designed for Teachers and Outdoor Educators and covers 5.5 Act 48 hours.  Pre-registration required by April 10 by clicking the green "Buy Ticket" tab to the right. 

Cost of $20 is due before the workshop. For more information, contact Pat Adams, EES at paadams@pa.gov or (724) 899-3611.
