Take a Peek at PEEC: Adventures in Learning the Great Outdoors

Take a Peek at PEEC

Spring has sprung sparking outdoor enthusiasts’ thirst for an invigorating chance to soak up the scenery at one of the many beautiful Pocono retreats. One, the Delaware Water Gap, is rich with waterfalls, plant life and other sorts of critters scattered about.

It boasts 77,000 acres of recreation wonderment with a wealth of resources ready to dish up some great educational fun while you take in the fresh air.

Situated within the Water Gap, Pocono Environmental Education Center (PEEC) takes pride in presenting a hands-on experience in environmental education geared toward contributing to an appreciation of nature.

PEEC Executive Director Jeff Rosalsky invites all to “Enjoy spring and spend time outdoors after this long winter,” adding “PEEC has a variety of interesting activities every weekend including nature hikes, fly fishing and nature photography classes.”

As we blossom further into the warmer weather PEEC is offering a lineup of activities some include a peek at the amphibians stirring about.

Their program Salamanders, Frogs, and More is set for April 27 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Participants will pay five bucks to trek through mud and water with their collection jars and nets ready to capture a closer look into the world of these crawling creatures.

May 4 brings PEEC’s free morning Wildflower Walk starting at 9 a.m. Join local flower expert Josie D’Alessandro as she offers informative tips on identifying foliage. Cameras for capturing the scenery and water for refreshment are encouraged.
