George and Olive Learn

Conservation Easement

History

 

The Learn family has had a longtime residency in the Tannersville area.

In 2011, their family created a lasting legacy by permanently protecting their property with a conservation easement.

The easement allows for public access to the eastern 15 acres of the property, which includes more than one third of a mile of the Pocono Creek.

 

A loop trail winds through the floodplain forest, which features impressive displays of spring wildflowers. Trillium, jack in the pulpit, trout lily, and wild geranium are just a few of the wildflowers that have been spotted on the property. 

 

The southwestern portion of the property is not open to the public. Please respect the landowner’s privacy by staying on the trails, which are marked with white diamonds.
