Learn About Nature In The Poconos

Come on down to Stroudsburg and learn about the wildlife here in the Pocono Mountains in the month of March. The Poconos is full of wildlife and an abundance of trees, wetlands, and very rare creatures. Learn about all of this at some of the Mountain's fun and full of nature information activities. 

The Middle Creek Birding Field Trip in Stroudsburg Pa on March 5th, 2015. That's this week! Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area is a major stop-over for tremendous numbers of Snow Geese. Their huge flocks in flight, sometimes create a blizzard of birds. Environmental Educator Brian Hardiman will lead this trip to observe this stunning spectacle of nature. The area's wetlands, fields, and woodlots also provide opportunities to see a host of waterfowl, raptors, and other bird species. Admission includes bus transportation. Participants should pack a lunch and binoculars and dress appropriately for the weather. 

The Maple Sugaring Day at Kettle Creek Environmental Center. The 38th Public Maple Sugaring Day will be held at the Meesing Outdoor Site in Marshalls Creek. The day will feature a tour of the sugar bush including stops to learn about Native American and early pioneer methods of making maple syrup, evaporator process, and methods of identifying and tapping a maple tree. After the tour, everyone will get a chance to taste some of the syrup on freshly made pancakes.
