Glen Providence Park - 3rd & West entrance
3rd & West Streets

Join us for a geology tour of Glen Providence Park! We are bringing back one of our most popular walks – Charles Randall will explain the geological history of the area, and he’ll put the rocks of the park into the regional picture. To supplement the rocks we can find, he will bring samples of what’s likely to be under the biology.

Rain, snow or shine!*


  • * Please note the location – we are starting at the entrance at Third and West Streets in Media. *
  • Registration is required – for now, please register by emailing FriendsoftheGlen [at] gmail [dot] com
  • Rain date Sunday, November 5, 2:00-4:00 *
  • Free & family-friendly
  • Estimated distance: 1-1.5 miles
  • Estimated time: 2 hours
  • Be prepared for stream crossings, steep hills, and uneven (possibly icy or muddy) terrain: wear sturdy walking shoes, bring a hiking pole if you use one, and you never know when you’ll want binoculars!
  • * If it rains – or in the event of high winds – we will email registered participants by 1:00pm on Saturday whether we will use the Sunday rain date.
