Falling for fall

Posted

With October in the rearview mirror and Thanksgiving looming on the horizon, signs of the season’s shift toward winter are all around. Take some time to tune in to the passing peculiarities and perfect imperfections of fall’s final days. Think about all there is to be thankful for here in the Upper Delaware River region as autumn casts its lingering spell over our senses.

Make every effort to enjoy the endless recreational opportunities here before snow and ice transform the water and regional landscapes. Go on the guided interpretive hike on November 17 at the Pocono Environmental Education Center (PEEC) in Dingmans Ferry, PA. Grab a ticket to PEEC’s Game Dinner on November 16.

While out and about, heed the arrival of various hunting seasons in Pennsylvania and in New York. Take note of an expanded bear season in PA. And always wear fluorescent clothing when sharing the forests with hunters.

If you set out to enjoy Pennsylvania’s pristine waters, be aware of the mandatory cold-weather life jacket regulation in place from November 1 through April 30.

And when falling temperatures eventually drive us indoors, take the opportunity to learn more about regional wildlife and how they prepare for and survive the colder seasons soon to be here.
