Chilly Hike and Cider
Gwynedd Preserve | Sat, February 24, 2018, 1:00pm - 3:00pm
Bundle up for a chilly hike along the meandering trails of our Gwynedd Preserve. Discover natural wonders of this 279-acre property and meet new friends along the way. Afterwards, we’ll warm chilly fingers with steaming cups of mulled cider.
Gwynedd Preserve is an oasis of nature nestled among the highly developed suburbs of Blue Bell and North Wales. After more than a century in agriculture, the preserve’s fields are being carefully restored. A walk along the trails reveals a re-emerging ecosystem of native plants including warm-season grasses and wildflowers.
The meadow and forest habitats here are particularly important because they are connected to other preserved lands in the Wissahickon Creek watershed. The entire 26-mile length of the riparian corridor of the Wissahickon Creek greenway is protected by private landowners and conservation organizations, as well as township and state entities.
Wear sturdy, well-insulated boots, especially if snow is on the ground.
Warm winter layers, hats, gloves, and scarves are recommended to stay keep you warm and dry.
Please leave your four-legged friends at home.
