Montour Preserve Hike

February 5, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Join Bob Stoudt and the staff of the Montour Area Recreation Commission for a relatively easy, family-friendly hike along the trails at the Montour Preserve.
We’ll begin at the Preserve’s Environmental Education Center, then head out to the trails to take in some of the sights and sounds of the late-winter season. Planned stops include the Goose Woods Trail (Middle Branch Chillisquaque Creek, Sugar Shack, pipeline construction update, Environmental Study Pond), Wildlife Management Trail (ponds and wildlife habitat improvement projects), and the Chilisuagi Trail (Lake Chillisquaque Dam, Heron Cove Picnic Area, Planet Walk, and Fossil Pit).
The 4.0 mile-long hike will be an out-and-back hike, returning to the Environmental Education Center. Attendees who do not want to take part in the entire hike will have several opportunities to leave early.
Please wear clothing and footwear appropriate for a 2.5 hour-long hike in early February. Please bring snacks and drinks as needed. This event will be held rain or shine, except in case of severe weather or dangerously icy conditions.
This event is family-friendly. Admission is free, but donations will be gladly accepted. Please remember that dogs are not allowed at the Montour Preserve; only service animals are allowed at the site.
For more information, please contact Bob Stoudt, MARC Director, at (570) 336-2060 or [email protected].
