Hike with us along a portion of the legendary Appalachian Trail! We are fortunate to live in an area that the Trail crosses through in several nearby locations.

Led by an Institute naturalist, the hike will explore some of the wonders to be found in the woods and along the byways.

The April 24 hike is for families with children age 7 and older.

This event is FREE (donations accepted).
Pre-registration is required; register via email at info@NatureAndCultureInstitute.org

A storm date will be determined later if needed.

COVID protocols in accordance with CDC and PA DOH guidelines will be followed.
