Winter Discovery Walk With Jim Kessler

Discover what lives in the natural world in winter. Join retired district forester Jim Kessler for a winter walk/snowshoe on the D&H trail in Union Dale on February 17th at 1pm. We will meet at the Rail-Trail office at 948 N. Main St. Union Dale Pa 18470. When the temperature drops and a coating of snow falls along the trail, it's the perfect time to put on that winter coat and enter the woods. In winter, many animals and non-migration birds are constantly searching for food, leaving clues to their activities in plain sight. This two hour hike will take us to places on and off the trail where we will discover hidden secrets of winter! Tell your friends and family. We hope to see you there.

Snowshoes for loan and are limited, please email, facebook or call us to reserve a pair.

What to bring:
Warm boots
Synthetic/wool layers of clothing that will stay warm when wet
Sun protection
Energy snacks

*Not enough snow to snowshoe? Don't worry we will make it a winter hike!
So make sure to wear warm winter boots.
