Join the YFPA as we head out to Chester County to visit the ruins of the Warwick Furnace, the third oldest iron furnace in Pennsylvania. We will partner with the French & Pickering Creeks Conservation Trust for a gentle hike with oral history and talk about a preservation plan for the remains of this historic industrial site. Afterwards, we'll visit the privately owned Warwick Furnace Farm, listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Parking on site. Space is limited to 20 people. Wear comfortable shoes, bring water, and insect repellent.
