Summer Events at Mt. Pisgah State Park
Calling all outdoor enthusiasts! Mt. Pisgah State Park has a full calendar of events throughout July and August! There are offerings for all ages and interests.
There are two DiscoverE programs for kids. July 8 is for ages 6-8 and July 15 for ages 9-12, both with a raptor theme. Pre-registration is required by calling the office at 570-297-2734. There is a fee of $15. The camps will run from 9:00 to 3:30 and feature activities, crafts, stories and live bird demonstrations.
Two kayak programs will be held this month. A Full Moon Astronomy Paddle will be held at 9:00pm on July 9. A guest speaker will share some facts and myths on this phase of the moon. At 9:00am on July 30 an Eco Paddle will be held. We will discuss bald eagles, aquatic vegetation management and fish enhancement structures. Both programs require you to bring your own kayak.
The Stream Stomp on July 16 at 9:00 will give participants the opportunity to learn about macroinvertebrate populations while getting wet in Mill Creek. Bring your boots-the park will supply the rest!
On July 24 the Waterways Conservation Officer will be at Stephen Foster Lake for a fun program on fishing. We will also learn about current fishing and boating regulations. Bring your own pole or borrow ours. All PA rules and regulations apply.
The Bradford County Library System and Penn State Master Gardeners will hold a Moth Ball on July 23 at 8:30pm. All ages are welcome to learn about native moths and insects.
Mount Pisgah Youth Field day will be held from 9:00 to 4:00 on August 20. Children ages 8 to 15 are invited to attend for free and must be accompanied by an adult.

Additional details about a Furbearer/Beaver program on August 6 and Bark in the Park on August 26 will be released later.
There are two StoryWalks ® at the park this summer. “Mama Built a Little Nest” can be read along the Oh! Susanna Trail between the rear pool parking area and the boat launch road. “Share, Big Bear, Share!” by local author Maureen Wright is along the pool fence.
The pool is open daily from 11:00 to 7:00. Unexpected circumstances may arise causing changes to dates and hours. The season closure date will be announced later.
