2019 Walk in Penn’s Woods: Adding some “Roll”

Posted: April 15, 2019

Based on enthusiasm and tremendous support, work has begun on the 2019 Walk in Penn’s Woods.

With the date set, October 6, we’ve already gotten some walk nominations, and the committee is making plans for fundraising, recruiting walks, and expanding our advertising. Our goal is at least one walk in every county and thousands of people in the woods!

In 2018, a few of our walks were wheelchair and stroller accessible, allowing families and those for whom a hike in the woods may be difficult to participate. In 2019, we’d like to add more opportunities to “Walk and Roll in Penn’s Woods.”

If you haven’t already given it thought, consider partnering in your community with woodland owners associations, environmental education centers, state- or municipal-owned land, or other landowners to make a walk happen. And if you have potential locations that will allow for greater accessibility, consider cooperating to make something happen. We want to get multitudes of people out to learn about and love the woods. To nominate a walk once you get your plans made or to find out more about this event, visit the website.

And, don’t forget to put Sunday, October 6 on your calendar and join a Walk in Penn’s Woods near you!
