October 15 – Ancient Bones of Valley Forge: Fossils of the Port Kennedy Bone Cave

The Port Kennedy Bone Cave, one of the most significant Pleistocene-era fossil finds in this part of the country, gives us a fascinating glimpse of what life was like at Valley Forge 750,000 years ago, and of the different species that made this area their home.

Fall campfire programs take place at 7 PM on selected Saturdays in the fall at Conway's Brigade.

Join a park ranger for an interactive evening by the campfire as we discuss unique
stories of Valley Forge and the American Revolution. The programs are located at Conway’s Brigade, and run for about an hour. Topics vary.

Accessible from PA Route 23. Park at the Von Steuben Statue parking lot or the
Varnum’s Picnic Area parking lot, then walk down the historic trace road to Conway’s Brigade.

Bring a flashlight, a blanket, and a jacket.

The program will be canceled in the event of rain, call 610-783-1099 before 5 PM to check on the status of the program.
