Bucks County Audubon Society
The nation’s only agriculturally based National Historic Landmark
Keep an eye out for the unusual giant-size pileated woodpecker during monthly bird walks at this environmental education and nature center. The society, which is located on the Honey Hollow watershed, also offers field trips to various birding hot spots.
But birding is just part of the story at the Bucks County Audubon Society, which manages the 700-acre Honey Hollow Environmental Center. Be sure to discover nature both indoors and out with adult education programs and touch tables where kids can handle bones, preserved nests and pelts.
Whether it’s an archeological dig for relics from the Lenni Lenape tribe, a morning or evening birding adventure by the bird blind or a guide-led hike to explore wildlife in the marsh, the Bucks County Audubon Society’s Honey Hollow Environmental Center can keep families, school groups or scout troops up to date on the latest developments in conservation and nature education.
Programs led by guest speakers, volunteers and trained professional staff provide the opportunity to become engaged in conservation and ecological activities. Honey Hollow’s forests, streams, ponds, marshes and fields are a living laboratory where visitors and members can experience wildlife at every turn.
Bring binoculars and sturdy walking shoes. Leave pets at home. The center is closed on Sundays.
July’s Barn Tour features lectures and tours of private Bucks County barns.
Be sure to check out the stream that runs through the Honey Hollow Environmental Center and in which you can even dig for rose quartz.
