Explore a winter wonderland at PPL’s Brunner Island Wetlands

What is happening at the Brunner Island Wetlands at this time of the year? What animals remain here, and how do they prepare for the winter? Find out during a nature walk from 2-3:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 6, at PPL’s Brunner Island Wetlands.

Join us as naturalist Jim Smith leads us on a hike around the ponds at the wetlands. Come discover all of the exciting things to make the season come alive and learn how to identify and track the animals that remain.

This program is free. Please dress for outdoor weather and wear proper footwear for cold and wet conditions. We will meet at the Wood Duck Pavilion. Bring binoculars if you have them.

The wetlands entrance is directly across from Gate A on Wago Road. Follow the stone road until you see the sign for Wood Duck Pavilion. The GPS coordinates at the pavilion are N 40 05.755 W 076 42.287.
