Kettle Creek Environmental Education Center is the Monroe County Conservation District’s Environmental Education Center. Kettle Creek Environmental Education Center provides year-round environmental education programs for people of all ages. The Center is dedicated to fostering community awareness through the first-hand experience of the natural environment of the Poconos.
The Kettle Creek Wildlife Sanctuary occupies a 166-acre preserve which contains an old field, mature deciduous forest, evergreen stands, and two ponds. Over 2 1/2 miles of maintained and well-marked trails are open for public use year-round, 7 days a week. Explore the Grey Fox and Red-Tailed Loops, Black Bear Trail, Songbird Trail, and Deer Trail.
There is a large clear-cut where a young forest is emerging, a stand of pines, a small swamp, a stream, a pond, and a maple forest complete with a Sugar Shack that is used to produce sweet maple syrup each March. Two miles of trails are open to the public year-round, dawn to dusk, for passive recreation and nature study.
