Earth Day in the Poconos: an Extraordinary B-Earth-Day Celebration

Take an Eco-Tour of the Delaware River

If you’re looking for an incredible adventure, canoeing down the Delaware River has everything you’ve been waiting for! The waters are calm and suitable for all experience levels so that you can paddle down the river peacefully. The best thing about canoeing down the river is that you’ll be sure you aren’t emitting any harmful substances into the atmosphere. This way, you can leave the river as beautiful as it was before you arrived. Be sure to wear a lifejacket while you’re on the water, snap a few pictures, and enjoy the ride! 

Appreciate Nature’s Beauty at Lackawanna State Park

The stunning natural beauty of the Poconos wilderness is all within reach at Lackawanna State Park. The remarkable park stretches across 1,445 acres and is home to Lackawanna Lake. Here you will find all kinds of pastimes perfect for your Earth Day celebration like fishing, swimming, and hiking. Lackawanna has 18 miles of hiking trails that wind their way through the park’s terrain, and offer unique views of the 198-acre lake that sits in the center of the park. For the best experience, we encourage you to stick to the trails. The marked paths are meant to limit foot traffic to specific areas so that the surrounding habitats will remain undisturbed by visitors.
