Wildlands Conservancy – Get Out! for Wellness: Stone Soup Stroll – 10:00 am – 12:00 pm at Dorothy Rider Pool Wildlife Sanctuary, 3701 Orchid Place, Emmaus, PA 18049. Explore the wintery trails at the Sanctuary; prizes will be given to those GOFW folks who have been on 10 or more hikes in 2023. As the tradition of Stone Soup dictates, we’ll cook up pots of “stone” soup over two open fires—one vegetarian and one beef. Bring a vegetable (fresh or canned) to add to the pot or bring some rolls to go with. Questions? Contact Arianna Kohler, AKohler@wildlandspa.org.
