Wissahickon Nature Club: 70 Years Young

Published by at 6:07 am under Books & Events

Here's the cake that celebrated Wissahickon Nature Club's 70th anniversary last weekend.

Founded in 1942 the Nature Club has been going strong for seven decades.  We celebrated at Mingo Creek County Park with bird and nature walks and lots to eat.

Wissahickon has evening meetings on Thursdays with exhibits and presentations,  September through December and late February through April. (We take the snowy months off).

From May to August, find us in the field learning about birds, butterflies, moths and plants.

Come join us.  Click here for more information.

    I don’t belong to the Wissahickon club (mainly because they meet in Sewickley and I live near Mingo Park), but the Western Pennsylvania Botanical Society was invited to participate in their celebration last weekend. I was only able to attend the birding walk in the morning, but it was a wonderful outing….the people in the club are very friendly, the birding walk leader was really good at pointing out the different bird song and helping us spot many of the birds that were singing with our binoculars. I would highly recommend that anyone who enjoys learning about nature check out the group.
