Autumn hiking programs


October 12, 2016

DINGMANS FERRY, PA — The Pocono Environmental Education Center (PEEC) will hold a couple of fall hiking programs this weekend. On Saturday, October 15 will be “Signs of Fall,” from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. Take a hike with us and discover the science behind the wonderful season of fall. We’ll discuss changing animal behavior, why leaves change color and why it’s the best season to be out and about. The cost is $5.

On Sunday, October 16 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. there will be a Bridge the Gap Hike and Bike. Bridge the Gap programs are funded by the William Penn Foundation, and are free to participants. The bike ride will be along the McDade Trail, followed by a hike back at PEEC. We will provide all equipment and transportation. Please bring a water bottle and lunch, and wear sturdy footwear. Snacks and extra water will be available.

Registration is required for both programs. For more information visit www.peec.org or call 570/828-2319.
