Across the state of Pennsylvania, hundreds of people welcomed the changing leaves and cooling air by taking a Walk in Penn’s Woods on the first weekend in October!

Sunday, October 3 marked the official 5th installment of Walk in Penn’s Woods, and hosted walks welcomed folks of all ages to learn, enjoy, and get engaged with forests and natural resources. Some walks involved bird watching, some taught about tree identification, others pointed to artistic representations of our forests, and some were about getting communities and friends together to enjoy time with one another. People also took to the woods in their own way, hiking trails and traversing their own land, and reported about their woodland adventure to receive stickers and Penn’s Woods learning resources. We are excited about the stories and adventures Walk in Penn’s Woods has created over the last five years and we look forward to a future of many more. Thank you to all of our hosts, partners, and sponsors who make this special event happen each year. Mark your calendars for next year and plan to take a Walk in Penn’s Woods on Sunday, October 2, 2022!
