So many species to observe when the snow is round - owls, birds, fox, etc. Pennsylvania's lands are some of the best destinations in the country to observe hundreds of species of birds and wild animals. Be sure to check out our wildlife viewing programs the 3rd week of March for National Wildlife Week!
There are many ways in March to celebrate the wildlife, waters and forests of our country. And we kick off the month with US Snowshoe Day - March 2nd! For many parts of the state it's a great year for that! Check out our calendar for fun outdoor winter activities to help get you moving outside!
We have beautiful conditions for x-c in most parts of the state! Peace and tranquility abound in parks and forests. Trip leaders take the worry out of where to go. In addition to the obvious fitness benefits, cross-country skiing is an excellent way to observe nature and makes a great family activity.
Get Outdoors March 2nd and use your snowshoes on US Snowshoe Day! Don't let deep snow hold you back from your winter treks. Snowshoes make it easy to traverse the powder, whether you are walking or running. Some programs even teach you how to make your own snow shoes!
