Paws on the Path

Parks are for dogs too. Take a ranger-led hike with your dog to get a little exercise and socialization. A great way to meet other dogs and dog people. Dogs must keep their humans on a leash. Please bring a clean up bag (or two) and water for dog and human - no water is available at Wolf's Hollow. Hikes will be held the second Saturday of the month and alternate between Nottingham and Wolf's Hollow County Parks. No registration required

Weird Wildlife

Venomous mammals? Snakes playing dead? Dogs that climb trees? Who knew! There is no need to travel around the world to find some of the most bizarre animals on the planet - many of them live in your backyard. Come in from the cold to learn about Pennsylvania’s craziest critters.  

Basic Boating Course

Boating Safety Education Certificates are required for all operators of personal watercraft, regardless of age, and for boat operators born after January 1, 1982 that operate motorboats of more than 25 horsepower. 

This free PA Fish & Boat Commission (PFBC) course is designed to help boaters make better informed decisions on the water. Instructors will provide course materials and information via a classroom setting to help you reduce the risk of injury and conflict on the water. Those who successfully complete the course may obtain this certificate, which is good for a lifetime (fees apply). 

A minimum of 8 hours of class time is required. Participants should bring a lunch/snacks. Sessions will also be offered in February.

Who's Not Hibernating?

Not every critter hibernates in the winter! Explore the park to discover who’s not hibernating at Hibernia. Look for tracks and see who's active - and what they might be doing this time of year.
