Programs Announced for Sinnemahoning State Park

The following programs will be offered at the Sinnemahoning State Park.

6:30 p.m. – Evening Kayak Paddle

8:30 p.m. – Pennsylvania’s Forests: Choices and Challenges

Pennsylvania’s borders encompass 17 million acres of forestland, almost 4 million of which are publicly owned. However, more than 12 million acres are under private ownership. Choices that are made today will impact the forests that future generations will have. Join the park naturalist at the campground amphitheater for this thought-provoking presentation.

1 p.m. – Biking the Lowlands Trail

Join the Sinnemahoning State Park naturalist for an afternoon interpretive bike tour of the Lowlands Trail. Take a leisurely ride through rich wildlife habitats and areas where people once lived and worked. Learn how the 40 Maples Day-Use Area earned its name! The Lowlands Trail, which has a Rails-To-Trails surface, is a fairly level, easy ride. Bring your own bike, or borrow one of ours. Meet at the Wildlife Center along Park Road near the Cameron / Potter county line. Water, sunscreen, and insect repellant are recommended.
