Walking the River Trail: Nature & History by the Schuylkill River

November 7, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

| Free

The Schuylkill Center sits perched atop and connected to the Schuylkill River Trail, just voted the number one urban trail in the country by USA Today. In a lovely walk between the Shawmont and Miquon train stations, director Mike Weilbacher introduces you to birds, creeks, trees, flowers, weeds, rocks and even the human history of the area. It’s three-mile round trip, so dress appropriately, wear comfortable shoes, and bring water and a snack. Park at the bottom of Shawmont Avenue by the train bridge; meet at the Shawmont train station.

Let us know if you plan to come.

Dress for the weather! Unless it’s raining heavily, we’ll walk.  Check our Twitter  or Facebook for a cancellation notice if the weather is bad. No posting means the event is going ahead.
