Bluebirding: Walking the meadows in search of new families

    Bluebirding: Walking the meadows in search of new families - Friends of Wissahickon
    by Carol Beam This is one of the best reasons ever to walk in our meadows! Every spring teams go out to see what's going on in those 41 wooden boxes on poles that dot the Houston and Andorra Meadows. We're in search of bluebirds, but there are a few other birds who show up.

Fallen Trees? FOW Volunteer Sawyers to the Rescue

Ever wonder how fallen trees are cleared from trails? Tree falls are an unfortunate and common occurrence in the Wissahickon, and most park users have seen the impact of large fallen canopy trees throughout the park, which sometimes block the very trail on which they are hiking. What to do? Climb over? Under? Go around? Turn back? Depending on the situation, options can be limited and often hazardous.

Winter Wilds: Reflections on Winter Hiking

By Carol Beam

    Winter Wilds: Reflections on Winter Hiking - Friends of Wissahickon
    By Carol Beam I can understand the first impulse: No. No way. Not happening. No thanks. That's how lots of people react to the invitation to hike in the dead of winter. Sure, it's going to be kind of challenging when you first get going.
