The Wilson College interpretive trail was founded in 2000 and began with a Growing Greener Grant ($24,000) from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
The interpretive trail is a ¾ mile nature trail that runs through several distinct habitats. The trail begins along the Conococheague Creek, then winds its way through a meadow to a forested area. All along the way, trees are marked with informative signs, and walkers have the opportunity to view wildlife, birds, and numerous plant species. Students and community volunteers alike can experience land stewardship in action here. Best of all, the trail is a great place for quiet recreation on the edge of Chambersburg.
VOLUNTEERS are welcomed and needed to help with plant projects and trail upkeep! Youth groups looking for a service project, scout troops, and other community members are encouraged to call Chris Mayer at the FCSS office to get involved at 717-264-4420.
