PASEF's Spring Outing in the Wissahickon Valley

Please join us on Tuesday, May 12, 2015 as we explore the challenges involved in maintaining an urban wilderness park in the Wissahickon section of Fairmount Park.

Our day begins at 10:00 a.m. with coffee or tea, juice, bagels, and danish in the historic Valley Green Inn. We will then board vans for a tour of Forbidden Drive narrated by Dr. Maura McCarthy, Executive Director of the Friends of the Wissahickon and PASEF's own Professor David Pope of SEAS. From time to time we will stop for those who wish to take short excursions on side trails. At noon we will return to Valley Green Inn for lunch and informal discussion.
