Long Pond is a unique area pf the Poconos that draws nature lovers from around the world. The barrens at Long Pond are interspersed in a vast landscape of swamps, bogs, marshes, and shallow ponds surrounded by red spruce, balsam fir and eastern hemlock – woodlands characteristic of Canada’s northern climate. The Audubon Society named Long Pond one of the “Important Bird Areas of Pennsylvania”. The moor-like landscape also boast Rhodora – a rare, wild azalea that makes Long Pond one of the most important moth and butterfly habitats in the state.
