The Partnership for Penn's Woods Announces "Walk In Penn's Woods" Event

Rural, urban and suburban woods, state and national forests and parks, municipal watersheds, conserved areas, private lands and industry in the state’s 67 counties will hold open houses and guided woods walks showcasing the multiple values and diverse uses of our state’s priceless forest resources.

As the fall season arrives this year, the first Sunday in October will feature mentored woods walks all across the state, providing entrée to woodlands, along with easy access to expert forest and wildlife professionals. Some individual Walks in Penn’s Woods may also schedule children’s activities, showcase management for wildlife or watersheds, exhibit the results of harvesting or planting, demonstrate the results of urban tree cover, showcase riparian buffers or reveal the fascinating innards of a local sawmill.You can find information about each individual event on the Walk in Penn’s Woods website.

Pennsylvania literally means "Penn’s Woods" and these woods are one of the state’s prized Crown Jewels. Not only do they provide a spectacular and significant timber resource, but the woods provide incalculable value as a water resource, pollution filter, carbon store, wildlife habitat and biodiversity reserve, urban refuge, and a priceless source of recreational and aesthetic enjoyment. They are also a resource challenged by invasive plants and diseases, climate change, mismanagement, development pressure, and legacy issues.

The Partnership for Penn’s Woods invites all Pennsylvanians to learn about the many ways that Penn’s Woods Works for all of us on October 1st by participating in one of the mentored walks and events across the state, by downloading additional information about the resource, or even by documenting and sharing your own learning adventure in our woodlands on the Walk in Penn’s Woods website.
