Join us for a guided nature walk during the peak of autumn as part of the state-wide “Walk in Penn’s Woods” initiative!

This guided 1.5 mile walk will explore Capital Region Water’s DeHart Dam and Reservoir in scenic Clarks Valley. This rare opportunity to walk the DeHart Dam will highlight the journey of drinking water from raindrop to the tap and the role we share in stewarding these water resources.

The beautiful area in the surrounding Clarks Valley is home to abundant wildlife, working forest, public lands and clean water. Nature will be observed at its finest with a Manada Conservancy field expert to identify birds, wildlife, flowers and invasive species. Forest and tree health will be discussed along the way.

Walk participants are advised to wear well-fitting sturdy shoes or boots. Terrain may be uneven and there are moderate inclines. We will meet in the gravel parking lot at the DeHart Dam entrance, approximately 12 miles northeast of Dauphin Pa. and accessed from Rt. 325 (Clarks Valley Road). Parking is limited and carpooling is recommended.  Google Maps will identify the parking location as “Dehart Dam, Halifax, PA.”

This program is free and open to the public, but registration is required and is limited to 50 participants.  Please register by contacting the Manada Conservancy office at office@manada.org or 717-566-4122.
