It’s the end of the season. Time to get over the winter blues, and get outside!  Join a park naturalist for a “Signs of Spring Evening Walk” explaining Allegany State Park’s new wetland boardwalk. This is an elevated pathway that keeps your boots dry while allowing you to view the wetland below. Participants will be treated to some early signs of spring that may include the display flight of the American Woodcock, chorusing Spring Peepers, newly emerged spring plants and much more.

This free event takes place on Thursday, March 23rd from 6:30-8:00 p.m. starting at the new wetland boardwalk parking lot on the Red House Maintenance Road. Participants should dress for the weather; bring a flash light or head lamp, camera, water, snack, and a sense of adventure.
