French Creek State Park

Once an industrial complex for the fledgling United State of America, today French Creek State Park is an oasis for people and wildlife. Straddling the Schuylkill Highlands, the 7,730-acre park is the largest block of contiguous forest between Washington D.C. and New York City. The forests, lakes, wetlands and fields are a destination for the people of southeast Pennsylvania to hike, fish, camp and bike.

We had a great time at the firefly presentation. I would absolutely recommend it for adults and school age children who want to learn more about these fascinating insects, what makes them glow, why they do it and how we can help them out. The park ranger was knowledgeable and her enthusiasm was contagious.
