Of Stone, Iron and Fire – Exploring the Stonecrusher Woods
The 2018 PHLT Natural Places and Open Spaces (NP&OS) Walk series continues with another naturalist led walk and talk on Saturday, August 18th.
Perched on an overlook high above the beautiful Brodhead Creek Valley near Analomink, Stroud Township’s Stonecrusher Preserve will be the back drop for this next in a series of PHLT Naturalist led walks and talks about both the natural and human history of Monroe County. Join local naturalist and long time PHLT Stewardship Volunteer for a Saturday afternoon “Woods Walk and Natural History Talk” exploring this Stroud Township Open Space site overlooking the Brodhead Creek. Both natural history and railroad history information will be shared during this afternoon exploration both on and off trail in the “woods of the Stonecrusher”.
Participants will meet at 1:00 in the parking area of Stroud Township’s Pinebrook South Park located just off Rt. 191 across from the Pinebrook Camp for carpooling to the Stonecrusher Preserve access. This PHLT Natural Places and Open Spaces walk/talk is free and open to the public with donations accepted for PHLT’s Land Stewardship Fund.
Preregistration is suggested and confirmed by calling PHLT at 570-424-1514. Please leave your name, number of persons in your group and a contact phone number in case walk plans change.
Can’t make it for the Stonecrusher Woods Walk, the next 2018 PHLT NP&OS Walks are scheduled as follows:
Sunday, September 30 at 1:00 – Exploring the Brodhead Creek from Where the Brodhead Doubles at Stites Mountain to the Leavitt Branch Headwaters
