Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River's summer program will continue with "Wildlife of the Upper Delaware Valley." Eastern woodland areas and the Delaware River Valley provide optimal living conditions for dozens of mammals of all shapes and sizes. With the help of several common mammal pelts, individuals will learn how to identify a variety of local mammals and find out about the physical characteristics, diet, and habitat of each. Park Ranger Christine Krooss will present this fun filled hands-on approach to learning about wildlife at the Zane Grey Museum on Saturday, August 6th at 2:00pm.
On Sunday, August 7th at 2:00pm join Park Ranger Susie Kaspar in Narrowsburg, NY for "Birds of Prey." Bald eagles soar through the skies, owls glide in the night, and hawks perch high in the trees. These and other raptorial birds make the Upper Delaware River Valley their home. Ranger Kaspar will present this program on the physical characteristics, habitat, diet, and migration patterns of birds of prey on the Narrowsburg Deck overlooking the scenic Delaware River.
