Locktender's Open House + Wild Flower Hike

Join SCA members and volunteers for a hike along the river and ravine trails all the while observing the abundant wild flowers that are now in full bloom along the trails.

Stop by the Locktender's House before or  after enjoying the brisk walk. The house will be open for visitors to come and learn about the history of the Schuylkill Navigation and its industrial heritage related to the local and regional community. Light refreshments will be served.

Also, Lock 60 will be opened at approximately 3 PM for those willing to help with a hands-on demonstration.

The hike will cancel only if there is a steady rain or downpour.  The Locktender's House will be open regardless of inclement weather. 

Pre-registration is recommended. A suggested donation of $2 per adult will gladly be accepted, children 12 or under are free.
