Free winter wildlife driving tour in Cook Forest this Saturday

Cooksburg, PA – Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can’t see animals and enjoy nature at Cook Forest and Clear Creek State Parks!

There will be a free interpretive driving tour on the Clarion River Winter Wildlife Expedition on Saturday, Jan. 11, starting at 7:30 a.m. at the park office.

See migrating birds, river otter, fisher, and more!

Listen to the full interview with Dale Luthringer is the Environmental Education Specialist for Cook Forest State Park.

Just because the herds of people have migrated away during the wintertime, doesn’t mean the wildlife is gone too. Matter of fact, winter on the Clarion is one of the best times of the year to observe wildlife in the park, especially some of the oddballs that you don’t get to see in the summer: migrating birds, river otter, fisher. How many species of birds and mammals do you think we can document along the National Wild & Scenic Clarion River?

To find out, please bring your binoculars to the Park Office for an interpretive driving tour as we search Clear Creek State Park, the Clarion River, and Cook Forest. Hot chocolate and coffee will be available at the Park Office to warm everyone up.
