This year the outing will remember our late president Chuck Tague who passed away in June.
What: Wissahickon Nature Club outing led by Dianne Machesney
When: Saturday, August 6, 10:00am
Where: Jennings Environmental Education Center, also called Jennings Prairie, Butler County. Directions From Pittsburgh: 79N to 422E roughly 5.8 miles to 528N. Go 7 miles. Meet in the Jennings Prairie parking lot on the left (west) side of the road.
Bring binoculars, field guides, lunch, beverages and water for the trail. The Prairie is hot and shadeless. Wear a hat and sunscreen.
This walk is open to the public. All are welcome and encouraged to bring a friend.
We’re sure to see Culvers root, tall sunflowers, dense blazing star and purple fringed orchids. And though we’ll focus on flowers, Wissahickon is a “general” nature club so we’ll look at everything that strikes our fancy — flowers, birds, butterflies and all.
