Looking to Spend Time Outdoors This Weekend?

While many will be spending this Thanksgiving weekend shopping, some local organizations have planned activities for those who prefer the outdoors. Remember to check their websites for details, as some require pre-registration and some charge fees.

Black Friday afternoon you can take a walk with the Friends of the Wissahickon along the Monoshone Creek.

Saturday morning offerings include bird walks at John Heinz Wildlife Refuge and Churchville Nature Center. A “Wellness Walk” is scheduled at the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education on Saturday afternoon. Another bird walk will be held at John Heinz on Sunday morning.
