Wildflowers are in bloom and birds are migrating through the park.
On January 1st, Park Naturalist Beth Kepley-McNutt faced approximately 90 people preparing to hike at Gifford Pinchot State Park.
A look at the skies and you would think it was a warm, sunny day. The temperature, however, was cold and the wind was blustering. Folks were bundled up in thick winter coats, gloves and hats.
As the group walked along the trail, they occasionally stopped while Beth shared facts about the park and the nature within. At the conclusion of the hike, the Friends of Pinchot State Park provided snacks and hot apple cider. The event was a great success! ■
