Spring in the Poconos is such a great time to get out and see what our area has to offer. While we might have put up our skis for the season, there’s no reason to be stuck inside!
If you’re looking for an excuse to get out and about, there’s a great event coming up that the entire family will enjoy. Take the whole crew to the Friends of Cherry Valley Spring Fling.
About the Event
The Friends of Cherry Valley Spring Fling will be on Sunday, May 19 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Head over to the Cherry Valley National Wildlife Refuge on Lower Cherry Valley Road, Stroudsburg.
That’s right. This event is a great chance to check out the new Cherry Valley National Wildlife Refuge. And it’s a really beautiful space!
While you’re there, you can enjoy live music and refreshments, check out the hiking and walking paths, and take part in lots of fun activities. There will be activities designed specifically for kids plus birdhouse building, archery, and more.
And if you’re an early bird, you can take part in an extra special event. The Pocono Avian Research Center will be having its third annual Bird Blitz. The blitz starts at 6:30 a.m. and goes until 12 p.m., although you can come and go during that time.
Volunteers will go out in teams on the trails for about thirty minutes at a time to check out the birds in the area. This event will help the Pocono Avian Research Center learn and record the changing bird community through the years as the Cherry Valley National Wildlife Refuge grows and changes.
If you want to learn about bird watching, this is a great opportunity! Binoculars will be available if you need them, and you can work with more experienced birdwatchers to learn all about birds in our area.
