Walk In Penn’s Woods
Rocky Bend is one of more than 50 Walk In Penn’s Woods sites across the state where Pennsylvanians of all ages will be getting out in the woods, building appreciation for the forests, the people who own them, and the importance of caring well for them.
Pennsylvania’s woods bring us values that we sometimes take for granted. The trees and ground cover provide nutrients for the soil, food and homes for wildlife, clean air and water, wood products that we use daily, and peace and tranquility for us to enjoy.
The woods “work” for us. Walk in Penn’s Woods raises awareness about the importance of forests to our lives and the effort that goes into caring for them.
Since 2017, the first Sunday in October has been set aside for Pennsylvanians to join hosted walks to learn more about Penn’s Woods and gain easy access to expert forest and wildlife professionals.
