Event Details

Did you know you can reach both ends of the Heinz Wildlife Refuge by train?  Our walk to and through the fall bird migration begins with coffee and snacks at 30th Street Station, then a train ride to Prospect Park where we begin our walk past several fascinating and beautiful historic sites and then enter the Refuge. We’ll enjoy several miles of trails along waterways and a lagoon where we expect to see many birds, picnicking along the way. Our return will be via the Eastwick station and a short train ride back to 30th Street.

Terrain and Difficulty: park trails, gravel roads and sidewalks Distance 6 miles with many stops to view both historic and natural sites.  Rated moderate. Wear good walking shoes or boots, and bring binoculars and water, snacks and a picnic lunch to eat along the way. Pre-registration required. Limit of 20 participants. You may join the walk also at the Prospect Park Train Station when the 9:56 train arrives. Transportation will be SEPTA trains.  Sign-up deadline November 12th, 2019, 5pm. Trip fee does not include SEPTA fares nor any food.
