  • Pronio Family Farm Tour

    October 17, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
    Please RSVP for directions (Map)

    Tour the Preserved Pronio Farm!

    Join us outdoors to take in the fall colors, learn more about Manada Conservancy, and find out what local land preservation is all about! The Pronio Family welcomes you to visit their farm during two days in October.  It is managed as working fields and woodlands and includes a section of the Horse-Shoe Trail. While we are losing farmland every day, the Pronio's are ensuring that their farm will not be one of those lost.

    Visit for a self-guided tour Saturday, October 17 or Sunday, October 18, anytime between 1:00 - 4:00 pm. 

    Stop by either day to enjoy a gentle walk around parts of this bucolic farm.  Maps will be available, and refreshments will be served courtesy of the landowner.  Volunteers (wearing masks) will be on hand with information about Manada Conservancy membership and land preservation, and some "Manada swag" will be available for purchase.  Many thanks to the Pronio Family for inviting us to enjoy their property!

    This is a free event but please contact us at office@manada.org or call us at 717-566-4122 to RSVP and receive directions to the farm.  NOTE: please wear a mask while at the farm.
