PENN RUN — Yellow Creek State Park has announced the following programs in August:


Who, Who, Who You Eating, 4 to 5:30 p.m.

Environmental Learning Classroom

Join the park naturalist to learn about the fascinating owls that reside in Pennsylvania. Participants will learn about the diet of an owl as we examine owl pellets, revealing exactly what prey animals they consume.

Owl Prowl, 8 to 9:30 p.m., North Shore Amphitheater

Join park naturalist Mike Shaffer to learn about the wonderful owls that prowl the night woods in Pennsylvania. After a short discussion, we will then go in search of these night-flying creatures to do a little prowling of our own. Bring a flashlight if you have one. Dress for the weather. Please park in the North Shore Pavilion area and do not park in Camping Cottage & Yurt Area.


Venomous Snakes of Pennsylvania, 2 to 3:30 p.m.

Environmental Learning Classroom

Don’t let their scales and appearance fool you — snakes play an important role in the environment. Find out what’s real and what’s not, from the poisonous to the perfectly harmless and much more. Live snakes will be on hand, so don’t miss out on this opportunity.

AUG. 10

Creek Critters, 2 to 3:30 p.m.

Meet beside the Lakeview Pavilion (main day-use area)

Join the park naturalist at Yellow Creek for an afternoon of fun and discovery as we explore Little Yellow Creek for the critters that live there. We’ll be in “crawdad” heaven. Wear shoes you can get wet. Great fun for the whole family!

AUG. 11

Lunch on the lake, noon to 3 p.m.

Boat rental (main day-use area)

Enjoy a relaxing cruise on Yellow Creek Lake. We will take in all the sights and sounds that nature has to offer as we enjoy a scrumptious catered luncheon. $18.00/ person.
