Pond paddling, night walks and more at PEEC


August 17, 2016

DINGMANS FERRY, PA — There will be a Bridge the Gap pond paddle on Saturday, August 20 from 1 to 3 p.m. Beginners are welcome; PEEC staff will teach you everything you need to know. Dress appropriately—you may get wet. This event is free, thanks to funding provided by the William Penn Foundation, but space is limited. Reservations are required.

That night from 8 to 9:30 p.m., there will be a Nature at Night walk on the grounds to listen for owls, look at stars and enjoy the music of the night. Enjoy fun activities that test your night vision—and the cool that night air has to offer after the recent hot spell. The cost is $5. Reservations are required.

On Sunday, August 21 from 1 to 3 p.m. there will be an Edible & Medicinal Plant Walk. Nature provides food and natural remedies for us in the form of many plants. Join PEEC on a hike focused on wild edible and medicinal plants. No collecting will be done within the park. The cost is $5. Reservations required.

To make reservations call 570/828-2319. For more information visit peec.org.
