Why You Should Support Our Organization
If you enjoy hiking McKaig Nature Education Center, you should support it. Here are a couple of reasons why... and some little known facts:
1: While many people assume McKaig is a township-owned park, the town is only a part-owner. The bulk of the upkeep falls to the non-profit Upper Merion Park and Historic Foundation. UMPHF relies on YOUR membership and donations.
2: Many people assume that trails just take care of themselves, and will always be there whenever you want to take a stroll, snap a few pictures or walk your dog. In fact, trails require constant maintenance due to erosion, storm damage, trees falling, weeds growing, and trash throwing. UMPHF relies on YOUR volunteer efforts and donations to keep our trails open and passable.
