Even though winter’s coming there are still many opportunities to participate in Nature events indoors and out. Here’s a list of activities, plus an online resource for finding more.
Walk in Schenley Park, Sunday October 25, 8:30am
Meet me at the Schenley Park Cafe and Visitor Center on Sunday October 25 at 8:30am for my last guided walk in the park in 2015.
NOTE: Schenley Drive will be closed until 9:00am for CMU Buggy Practice so your best bet is to park at Anderson Playground and walk across the bridge to the Visitors Center. Dress for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes. Click here for updates in case of cancellation or bad weather.
