RESOLUTION HIKE


This year, we resolved to get more people hiking in the parks. Now that the leaves have turned, bring a friend to enjoy a moderate and social hike among the fall colors. Intensity and route may be influenced by hikers’ interests. Please bring water.

THE WOMEN OF PENN’S WOOD TEA


The Friends of Springton Manor invite you to escape your daily routine and enter a time long past. Meet ladies of significance from Pennsylvania and enjoy a variety of teas, finger sandwiches and light desserts in the music room of the Manor House. After the presentation on our historic guests, enjoy your refreshments and socializing. If you are part of a group, please register for seating at the same table (up to 8 guests). This program supports projects at Springton Manor Farm, such as the recently planted wildflower meadow and new animal run-in shed.


PUT THE ANIMALS TO BED


For Ages 3+.  Help Farmer Jim with the evening routine of feeding and caring for the animals. Brushing and grooming will help prepare them for a good night’s sleep. Where do the barn cats spend the night? Donations of old towels and blankets welcome.

PAWS ON THE PATH


Parks are for dogs too! Bring your dog on a ranger-led hike to get a little exercise and socialization. Dogs must keep their humans on a leash at all times. Please bring a clean up bag and water for all hikers - dog and human. Don’t have a dog? You’re welcome to come get some exercise too!

TOO MUCH FUN IN THE SUN?


Did you take proper precautions this summer? Learn which sunscreen is best for you; how to find a dermatologist, and check for skin cancer. An optional DermaScan screening to view the sun damage on your face and neck will be provided.

SILENT HUNTERS OF THE NIGHT


In the dead of night, owls have an amazing ability to hunt swiftly and silently. Via slides, pellets and mounts, learn about the owls of our area. On a moonlit walk from the meadow to the forest edge, listen as our guide calls in Pennsylvania’s Eastern Screech Owl, the nighttime hunter we are most likely to see or hear this time of the year.
