Newly opened to the public, the 3,412-acre Bear Creek Preserve is a vast expanse of forests and steep stream valleys in the Pocono Plateau’s Lehigh River Watershed. The preserve–larger than many state parks–provides critical habitat for a myriad of wildlife species, including black bear, coyote, and many migratory songbirds. Bear Creek Preserve adjoins another large tract of private, conserved land, forming a conservation area of more than 6,400 acres.
