The Hay Creek watershed is part of the area known as the "Hopewell Big Woods" which is the largest unbroken forested area in southeastern PA. It is also an iconic PA Highlands landscape featuring rugged terrain and pristine streams that flow down to the Schuylkill River.
On Sunday, November 6, AMC hike leader and Susan Charkes (50 Best Day Hikes Near Philadelphia) will lead a hike in the Birdsboro Waters portion of the Hay Creek watershed. The hike will feature mature hardwood forests around two pretty reservoirs and the well-known Birdsboro Quarry
rock climbing wall. Along the way hikers will learn about the fascinating
industrial history that shaped the area, the geology that underlies it
and the plants that grow there-- including some rare species. For more details visit AMC's website. Meeting time is 10AM. Meeting place details provided to registrants only. Register by contacting Susan at: firstname.lastname@example.org
