Walk in Penn’s Woods is a new initiative to get people out in the woods. Trip leaders: Mike and Laura Jackson (814)652-9268. Address: 8621 Black Valley Road Everett, PA
This exploratory nature walk will feature habitat projects like vernal pools and young forest management that attract a diversity of wildlife. Bring your binoculars, if possible, and your curiosity, as we will take a close look at all sorts of plants and animals. Meet at the Jackson’s house at 2.5 miles south of Everett, PA.
Directions: Take I-99 South to the Everett exit. Follow Rt. 30 East for about 8 miles. Take the exit for Business Rt. 30 into Everett. Turn Right onto 5th Ave. and cross a bridge over the Raystown Branch. (If you pass the Everett Foodliner you have gone too far.) Then make an immediate Right onto Black Valley Road. After 2.5 miles, turn Right onto a gravel road labeled “The Jacksons.” Follow this lane for 0.5 miles and watch for parking signs. Note: Your GPS may not take you far enough on Black Valley Road, so keep going until you see our lane on the Right.
