Walk in Penn’s Woods evolved from a simple statement made by landowner Ruth Park to a receptive audience in 2016: “I do wish we could ALL get out into the woods for a walk one day!” That idea, spoken with such passion, birthed a partnership of forest organizations and woodland owners, motivating people throughout the state into the woods on the first Sunday in October.
In 2022 we are proud to say by Governor's decree (PDF) the first Sunday in October is a Walk in Penn’s Woods Day.
Please consider hosting a walk or joining one- or head out on your own and enjoy the forest we love and are dedicated to supporting.
