IN APPRECIATION OF PROTECTED LAND, PROTECTED WATER
CHERRY VALLEY SCAVENGER HUNT
The COVID-19 emergency canceled the planned Get Outdoors Poconos hike in July 2020. So BWA offers instead a self-guided scavenger hunt for families at Cherry Valley National Wildlife Refuge.
SAVE THE DATE!
IN AUGUST: A virtual hike to Indian Ladder Falls
September 19: Snow Hill Road, Delaware State Forest
More hikes are being planned for later in 2020. Check back for details!

FOR THE BIRDS
As we hike through the Poconos, let’s give a thought to the imperiled golden-winged warbler and a nod to the landowners who make a point to provide habitat.

MAKING CONNECTIONS: TRAILBLAZERS
With trails scattered throughout the county, many would-be walkers don’t know where to start.
What if existing trails could be linked, with access and parking at clearly marked trailheads in every township? More — what if our trail system could be linked to networks of trails beyond? What if you could bike, say, from Delaware Water Gap to the Portland footbridge — even all the way to the Statue of Liberty?
That’s not a pipe dream. Read more about the trail plans here.
INDOOR ADVENTURE: ESU'S SCHISLER MUSEUM
In the span of an hour at the Schisler Museum at East Stroudsburg University, visitors can tour the Frozen North, a Boreal Forest, Canyon Country, the Verdant East, and the African Bush.
HOW A COMMUNITY CHANGED CHERRY VALLEY
Pennsylvania protects its outdoor heritage with state parks, state forests, and game lands. What luck to have all of these nearby!
