The Wissahickon in February with Andi Wingert, Debbie Hoellein and Jim McClory

February 24, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Meet at Walnut Lane Golf Club

In winter, our senses are amplified by the lack of foliage and sights and sounds of the woods are transformed. Join Debbie, Jim and Andi as we identify some native winter shrubs, spot ghostly sycamores, and listen to the sounds of the creek below. We will certainly spot some woodpeckers working on the hollow trees to find food. Distance is about 4 miles. Children over the age of 12 are welcome, but no dogs unless service dogs please. Hike will have steep hills, hiking boots recommended.

Distance: 3.5 miles

Level: Difficult (some rocky descents and ascents)

Registration is required for all hikes so that participants can be informed of weather or other emergency cancellations. We ask all event attendees to bring a mask and mask up if a distance of six feet cannot be maintained during the activity. If you or anyone in your household are exhibiting COVID-19 systems, please stay home. More information is at fow.org/covid-19.

Unless otherwise specified, Trail Ambassador Walks may be on rocky, rugged trails that may be wet and slippery. Wear sturdy shoes or boots with socks. Walks are cancelled in heavy rain. Service animals are always welcome. For more information contact Christina Bassler at bassler@fow.org. Visit www.fow.org for updates.
