Nescopeck State Park

Bordered on the south by steep Mount Yeager and on the north by Nescopeck Mountain, the 3,550-acre Nescopeck State Park encompasses wetlands, rich forests and many diverse habitats. Nescopeck Creek, a favorite of anglers, meanders through the park. Hiking trails follow the creek, climb mountains, pass through quiet forests and skirt wetlands. An environmental education center provides year-round educational programs on the park’s unique resources.

Very good program. Presenters were experts in their field and enthusiastic in their presentation.
Hands on practice was very helpful. Facilities were good and length of program was appropriate. Hopefully this program will continue to the intermediate and expert levels in the future.
Thank you for your effort in organizing this worthwhile education opportunity and activity.
