Special Habitat Areas
Built by Pamela Gilligan and Kimberly Nolan—two of the Preserve's incredible interns—in 2015, the Green Labyrinth is a calming focal point within the Preserve’s forest, creating a bridge between the inner self and the natural world. Located adjacent to the Bucks County Trail, the labyrinth’s spiral design is an ancient and mysterious pattern that is representative of the journey through life. Believed to possess both healing and spiritual properties, labyrinths can be traced as far back as 3,500 years ago, and have been found in different cultures, in different times, and in places as diverse as Egypt, India, Crete, Scandinavia, Iceland, Peru and Arizona.
Walking the Green Labyrinth can be a meditative experience. To enhance that experience, a step-by-step meditation guide is available at the Visitor Center.
