Adventure Squad event now open to Juniors!

We're happy to announce that Geocaching & Mine Magic at Wingfield Pines, Sunday, July 16, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., is now open to Girl Scouts entering fourth and fifth grade!

Through this joint program with GSWPA and Allegheny Land Trust, girls will geocache for a patch and enjoy a picnic lunch. Then they'll take a walk to watch the drainage from a former strip mine transition from murky orange to clean, clear water flowing into Chartiers Creek, thanks to the magic of a passive treatment system.

Trust us, it's super cool stuff!
