Lots to see at PPL

On my way into work early this morning I was greeted by a couple of beautiful young deer near the entrance of the PPL Wallenpaupack Environmental Learning Center. They must have been strolling through the preserve for their early morning forage as they stopped near the driveway at the edge of the woods to graze. The doe was much more interested in what I was doing as she watched my every move intently; the young buck could care less as he went about his foraging. They worked their way through the gravel overflow parking lot and into the grassy area where I captured a better shot of the four point buck.

At our environmental preserves, PPL works to protect the land, care for endangered species and habitats, and provide public recreational facilities for people to learn about and enjoy nature’s beauty. That’s evident here at the PPL Wallenpaupack preserve with lots of wildlife to see throughout the year including these deer as well as osprey, bald eagles, songbirds, monarchs, salamanders and much, much more. Be sure to stop by our learning center and see them for yourself! While you’re at it, we’d love to hear and see your own observations!  From experience, it’s a great way to start the day!
