The Wissahickon in March with Andi Wingert, Debbie Hoellein and Jim McClory
March 24 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Meet at Cedars House Cafe
Join Andi, Debbie, and Jim on their first hike of the Spring. There is no place like Wissahickon Valley Park to experience the beauty of this time of year. We’ll note the flora, including which flowers, both native and non-native, are blooming. We’ll appreciate the changes in the birds and other wildlife this season brings. Our approximately 4 mile hike will be in the Andorra Natural Area and the east side of the Wissahickon, north of Bell’s Mill Road. Expect some rough and rocky terrain. Children 12 years of age and older are welcome when accompanied by an adult, but please- no dogs other than service animals.
Distance: 4 miles
Level: Difficult (some rocky descents and ascents)
