Bear Creek Preserve | Wed, January 16, 2019, 9:00am - 10:00am
Do you have snowshoes but nowhere to go? We have the trails for you! Snowshoers of all ages will delight in the opportunity to explore snow-covered Bear Creek with Preserve Manager Josh Saltmer.
Bear Creek Preserve is a vast expanse of forests and steep stream valleys in the Lehigh River Watershed. Larger than many state parks, the preserve is a mosaic of diverse, thriving habitats and plant communities, including several rare species. The land provides vital habitat for native wildlife, including black bear, coyote, Bald Eagle, and many species of migratory songbirds. Bear Creek Preserve is part of a larger landscape of protected lands and popular recreation areas, including state parks and gamelands, that spans more than 150,000 acres.
