On Sunday, November 18 the Pocono Heritage Land Trust (PHLT) will host a tree- identification and leaf peeping hike along Pocono Creek. The hike will be led by Don Miller, local naturalist and PHLT board member. It is walk #25 in PHLT’s Natural Places and Open Spaces guided walks.
PHLT’s Pocono Creek Preserve, nestled between Weis Market in Tannersville and the former Northampton Community College campus, is a nature oasis in the midst of a heavily developed area of the county.
This walk is an easy, family-friendly stroll, highlighting the diversity of plant life that exists where water, land, and human expansion come together. Young children and those who enjoy learning about the natural world are welcome, but energetic youngsters may find the slow pace challenging.
The hike will begin at 1:00 PM and last approximately 3 hours. There are no bathroom facilities on the preserve.
