Mix History and Natural History on a morning walk through the wilder corners of The Woodlands. You'll look up for birds, you'll look down for snakes and salamanders, and you'll learn about how West Philly's wild neighbors use the cemetery. (Bring binoculars if you have them).
This is a rain or shine, "PAY WHAT YOU WISH" tour.
