Upcoming Events

October 3, 2021 - Walk in Penn's Woods:

This year, the ODC will participate in the statewide initiative Walk in Penn's Woods on Sunday, October 3rd.  Since 2017, the Walk in Penn’s Woods partnership has been working to offer Pennsylvanians a statewide day of walks in the woods on the first Sunday in October. These walks provide an excellent opportunity to get out, have fun, and learn about Pennsylvania’s forests, to see forests in new ways, and to understand and appreciate the many values we hold for the woods.

Please RSVP to [email protected] so we know how many participants to expect.
