Bird The Ridge! Natural History Program
April 30, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC+0
Do you like native wildflowers, ancient trees, and brilliantly colored Neo-tropical songbirds? YOU will find all of this and more while we explore approximately 2.5 miles around this incredibly biologically diverse site. There will be an opportunity to purchase lunch/dinner at a local bakery after the program. There is no charge for this hike, but donations to the Pocono Heritage Land Trust Stewardship fund are greatly appreciated.
Meet at the Lake Lenape/A.T. parking lot in the Borough of Delaware Water Gap.
Directions: Take I-80 east and exit at the Delaware Water Gap exit on Route 611 (last PA exit before crossing the river). Take 611 south through town. Turn left at only light in town. Proceed on 611 south until you see the Deer Head Inn on your right. Turn right at the Deer Head Inn and drive approximately 100 feet before going left into the parking lot entrance.
