WAYNESBORO—The Institute invites area families on a free, guided hike along the Appalachian Trail on Sunday, March 27 from 1 to 3 p.m.

With guidance from an Institute naturalist, hikers will discover some of the wonders of the season in the woods and along the byways. 

“The Appalachian Trail is legendary,” said Pam Rowland, Institute education director and program organizer. “We are fortunate to live in an area that the Trail crosses through in several nearby locations.”

The hike is one of a series of Appalachian Trail hikes planned for the last Sunday of each month through May 2022, as part of The Institute’s Naturalist Discovery Series. 

The activity is geared for families with children age 7 and older. 

Participation is free, but pre-registration is required. Register via email at [email protected]. The meeting place for the hike will be sent upon registration.

COVID-19 safety protocols will be followed.

This program series is sponsored by Pam and Bruce Rowland, and by The Institute’s Today’s Horizon Fund Contributors: The Nora Roberts Foundation; The John R. Hershey Jr. and Anna L. Hershey Family Foundation; APX Enclosures, Inc.; The Carolyn Terry Eddy Family: Carolyn, with daughters Connie Fleagle & Kim Larkin.
