Mayor and children planting a tree

Spend a day outdoors celebrating nature by participating in numerous family friendly, nature-oriented walks and workshops at this free Citiparks event sponsored by the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy and 91.3fm WYEP. The 151-acre Frick Woods Nature Reserve offers an extensive trail system and an impressive array of habitats filled with Pennsylvania's native plants.  
Activities include a ceremonial tree planting, eco art, nature walks, an animal encounter, and an invasive tree sweep.  Check out the web site for more details, but here are the basics:
