Take a 3-4 mile hike around McKees Rocks with us and learn the history of the area. We'll start with the earliest settlements, work our way through the railroad era and into the present, then finish up with a discussion about where this borough is going in the future.

Take an easy 2-3 mile walk through the forests of the Montour Run Valley. We'll join Sean Brady, Executive Director of the Hollow Oak Land Trust and Ryan Miller, Western Pennsylvania Conservancy Zoologist, for an educational tour of the area. We'll keep our eyes and ears open as we learn about the vernal pools that dot the landscape and of the Eastern wood frogs, spring peepers and Jefferson salamanders that call them home.
Sunday, March 16
Discover the old growth stands and "Forest Cathedral" of Cook Forest as we hike 8.75 miles through this beautiful, 8,500-acre PA state park. We'll cover moderate terrain at a steady pace while taking in the natural beauty of the area. There will be some large climbs along the way. We'll stop for lunch and periodic breaks along the way.

Once upon a time, there were families of adventurers that wandered Allegheny Commons learning about the trees and animals that live there through the winter. They grew very hungry from their journey. After the walk, they gathered around the park benches to enjoy a hot bowl of homemade soup made with a magic "stone" and listen to the tale behind its name. Soup ingredients provided by the East End Food Coop.
