Hiking in the Wissahickon on March 13, 2016

Sierra Club is leading an outing on Sunday, March 13, 2016.  The hike will be approximately 3 miles and takes place in Wissahickon Valley Park; it is a moderate hike geared towards adults.  We will leave at 1 PM from the administration building at Houston Playground, located at the corner of Sequoia Rd. and Grakyn Rd..  Parking is available on local streets, and the playground can be reached by bus lines, such as the 9 and 27. We will hike rain or shine. 

Following the hike, refreshments will be served and we will learn from Sierra Club leaders about the club's efforts on the Beyond Coal campaign to reduce emissions from coal plants in Pennsylvania.  Participants are encouraged, however, to bring their own lunch and snacks, especially if they have food allergies or dietary restrictions. We will also learn about some of the conservation topics and restorations that have taken place at this area of the park. 

Participants should dress warmly, appropriate to the weather, and bring appropriate shoes, preferably hiking shoes; they should also carry drinking water. Please note that to participate in any Sierra Club outing, you will need to sign a liability waiver. Additionally, any minors will need to have a liability waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian.

So our leaders have an idea of how many participants to expect, and so we can plan to have enough food, please either RSVP via the Facebook event or by emailing Sam Ackerman; we are also available to answer any questions about the outing.
