Soggy Shoes and Critter Conflicts

It still might be a little soggy out there, but it’s always a good time to get outside and enjoy some fresh air! Come out on Saturday to learn some tree identification while you check out the Wallenpaupack Lake Trail that skirts the shoreline of Lake Wallenpaupack.  Then see and hear about some of our furry friends who can sometimes cause conflict in our neighborhoods. We hope to see you this Saturday, Oct. 1 at the PPL Wallenpaupack Environmental Learning Center for some free programs…

Trees of the Trail ~ Saturday, October 1, 10 a.m. to noon
Presenter: Gene Shultz, Wallenpaupack Area School District educator

Enjoy a leisurely fall, morning walk on the Wallenpaupack Lake Trail while your guide helps identify some of the trees growing along the trail. All participants will receive a copy of the “Common Trees of Pennsylvania” booklet, produced by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. Be prepared with appropriate dress and footwear for a 3-mile walk along the wooded trail. Children, adults and families are welcome to attend this free program and registrations are not necessary.

Dealing With Human-Wildlife Conflict ~ Saturday, October 1, 1:30 – 3 p.m.
Presenter: Kathy Uhler, Pocono Wildlife Rehabilitation Center

Whether it’s bears eating the garbage, raccoons in the attic, skunks under the deck or groundhogs eating the flowers, wildlife problems can be serious, frustrating or expensive. Professional wildlife educator Kathy Uhler has more than 30 years of experience working with wildlife and educating people, and will provide each attendee with preventions, products and resources to protect property from creatures causing conflict or damage. Live animals will accompany her presentation. This program will educate, enlighten, entertain, and, most of all, provide humane practical solutions to common wildlife conflicts. Registrations are not necessary.
