In the news of late, there has been heated discussion of the pros and cons of a proposed zip line course within Wissahickon Valley Park. Come explore the forest that might someday house the zip line, and consider the potential impacts to the area (positive or negative) that could occur. We’ll observe large beech and tulip poplar trees, interesting forest floor vegetation, and rocky barrens. We’ll also hike a section of the Yellow Trail.
