    Manada Conservancy and the Dauphin County Woodland Owners Association have partnered for the 2019 Walk In Penn's Woods.  This 1.5 mile guided walk will be held at Ibberson Conservation Area – East, located in scenic Powell’s Valley.

    This beautiful conservation area is home to abundant wildlife, unique aquatic features, public land, and clean water.  Field expert Ian Gardner will help identify birds, wildlife, flowers, and invasive species.  Additionally, DCNR service forester Andy Brought will discuss forest health and silviculture along the way.

    Walk participants are advised to wear well-fitting, sturdy shoes or boots.  Terrain may be uneven, and there are moderate inclines.  This walk is not wheelchair and stroller friendly.  Please leave pets at home.

    Manada Conservancy and DCWOA will provide water for hikers and participants; please bring your own refillable water bottle.

    This event is free and open to the public but registration is required. To register, please email Manada Conservancy at or call 717-566-4122. 

    Directions:  From PA 322/22, take PA 225 north for 4.5 miles.  Just before entering the village of Matamoras, turn right on Camp Hebron Road (which becomes Back Road) and follow it for 4.5 miles.  Ibberson Conservation Area is on the right.  We will meet at the gravel parking lot at the Ibberson Area Trail Head.

    Coordinating partners include PA Forestry Association, Center for Private Forests, Penn State Extension, DCNR, PA Forest Stewards, and the PA Sustainable Forestry Initiative.  These partners and additional supporters work energetically to create events to entice individuals, families, friends, and neighbors out into Penn's Woods for an enjoyable learning experience.
