PHLT is holding a bioblitz on three nature preserves on Devils Hole Road near Mount Pocono, PA:

- Kurmes Nature Preserve

- Fieldstone Farm Nature Preserve

- Yankee Run Nature Preserve


The three preserves total about 500 acres and comprise a variety of habitat types.  There are two headwater creeks, a stretch of the upper Paradise Creek, vernal pools, wetland seeps, and mesic to dry rocky forest communities - a nice slice of what the Pocono Region has to offer naturalists!


People with identification skills (especially insects, fungi & mammals) are needed - but anyone is welcome to join in on the fun!


COVID-19 protocols will be in place. Please RSVP using the form seen here:
