New Year, New You! Begin the New Year with a focus on getting active & living healthy.

Check out our calendar for fun outdoor winter activities to help get you moving outside!
So many species to observe when the snow is round - owls, birds, fox, etc. Pennsylvania's lands are some of the best destinations in the country to observe hundreds of species of birds and wild animals.
We've already had snow for x-c! Peace and tranquility abound in parks, forests and other lands. Trip leaders take the worry out of where to go. In addition to the obvious fitness benefits, cross-country skiing is an excellent way to observe nature and makes a great family activity.
Don't let deep snow hold you back from your winter treks. Snowshoes make it easy to traverse the powder, whether you are walking or running. Some programs even teach you how to make your own snow shoes!
