We're back for a special weekend edition! Join Mindy Maslin, PHS Tree Tenders Program Manager, and her dog, in the Wissahickon woods to learn about the fun you can find on nature walks in our local woods. The woods are the perfect place to get your daily dose of exercise and fresh air without the fear of too many people. 

The Wissahickon valley is rich in natural minerals which are great for home art projects, including mica sheets from Wissahickon schist, and overabundant, invasive grapevine that can be pulled into homemade nature wreaths! 

Mindy is here to show you how!
