So many species to observe when the snow is round - owls, birds, fox, etc. Pennsylvania's lands are some of the best destinations in the country to observe hundreds of species of birds and wild animals. Be sure to check out our wildlife viewing programs the 3rd week of March for National Wildlife Week!
There are many ways in March to celebrate our wildlife and waters while being healthy. Healthy eating choices and physical activities with friends and family are the way! Check out our calendar for fun outdoor activities - like Free Fishing days - to help get you moving outside as the days get longer!
We have beautiful conditions for x-c in most parts of the state! Peace and tranquility abound in parks and forests. Trip leaders take the worry out of where to go. In addition to the obvious fitness benefits, cross-country skiing is an excellent way to observe nature and makes a great family activity.
With warmer weather finally arriving, excitement is building among anglers and kids for the PFBC’s popular Mentored Youth Trout Days, expanded this year to include all PFBC stocked trout waters. The first Mentored Youth Trout Day will be held March 28, 8AM-7:30PM in 18- SC and SE counties.
