    Thank you Ms. Sara and Mr. Mike for an outstanding lecture, PowerPoint and workshop! We very much enjoyed the presentation and will carry all that we learned with us through our hikes and exploring the Wissahickon. After the lecture and seminar, we hiked north to the covered bridge. We noticed much exposure rock formations... So awesome to understand the history and molding of the beautiful land here. We then headed over to "The Valley Green" and hiked to the cave!!! Enjoyed learning of the "hermit" who took up residency there and so much of the history and folklore! Looking forward to learning more and becoming more involved with the friends of Wissahickon!!! Even though we had to hike through shin deep slush, solid ice and knee deep snow, to get a "hands on" experience, I would say it made it more meaningful and memorable! Wonderful day!

    Sarah did a great job of making a "scientific" sort of topic very interesting and engaging. I really learned a lot and looking forward to Sarah's geology hike in the spring.

    Can't make it after all. Brunch for my mom's birthday but I bet it will be a great talk.
