Get outside and join us for our 15th annual Take-A-Hike week(s)!

Monday, April 5 - Friday, April 9 & Monday, April 12 - Friday, April 16

Our favorite spring vacation activity is back! Let’s get outside and celebrate spring! Join us for two weeks of small group hikes, family challenges, and outdoor self-guided activities. Visit the Overbrook Nature Center to pick up one of our many self-guided hikes & scavenger hunts, too. All programs are free for members and free with admission for non-members!

All hikes will allow a maximum of 20-25 people depending on the hike. Hikes will be first-come, first-served. Depending on the hike you may need to sign in at the Overbrook Nature Center. Further information will be posted on the door of the Overbrook Nature Center. Masks are required on all programs. Hikes with an asterisk (*) are stroller/wheelchair accessible.

We are also excited for our limited re-opening of our Heckscher WILD! exhibit. Entry will be permitted, first-come, first-served, every 10 minutes between 12:00-2:00 p.m. Tuesday-Friday. A maximum of 10 people permitted during each time slot. Hand-washing before entry and masks are required. Strollers not permitted.
