Jennings Environmental Education Center

Jennings offers a full range of educational programs. A unique attraction at the center is its relict prairie, which includes the spectacular and well-known prairie flower, the blazing star. The relict prairie ecosystem is rare in Pennsylvania. Visitors should try to visit in late July or early August when the prairie is in full bloom.

The little hike and re-enactment was very good. I appreciated getting to converse with the participants, and they seemed to have a reasonable amount of knowledge relative to the event. My one criticism is that the student readers, if they are going to read a script, at least read it more slowly, and project louder, and relate better to the crowd. I know...I'm sure that individual is hard to find. Overall, I found it very worthwhile. Thank you.

Scouting Venturing Crew 488 attended . One of the lady rangers showed us the more modern snow shoes. We had brought our own snow shoes - old wood ones. It gave the Venturers the experience the differences in snow shoes. We snow shoed on the lake . It was a great time.
