Programs at Cook Forest State Park

call ahead to register for these activities!

Thursday, October 30 at 730pm – ‘Cooners & Coyotes’     Ever listen to the caterwaulin’ whines and growls of raccoons, or witness their territorial antics?  Ever hear coyotes callin’ in Pennsylvania’s Wilds?  Please meet us at the Log Cabin Inn Environmental Learning Classroom for a driving spotlight tour to wildlife hotspots in the park.  Remember to keep your windows rolled up and fingers inside your car.  One never knows what’ll show up at night… (3 hrs).

Friday, October 31 at 800pm – ‘Cathedral by Candlelight’     Want to experience something different this year for Halloween instead of the standard “trick-or-treaters”?  Come walk back in time with us into the depths of the Forest Cathedral with an historical character from the past.  Come view the ancient forest as we walk beneath the giants by candlelight.  Either a French     Marine from the 1750’s who saw these massive trees 250 years ago, or a lumberman from the 1800’s will be there to guide us.  Candy and hot chocolate will be served at the Log Cabin Inn Environmental Learning Classroom.  Bring your flashlights!  (2 hrs)

Saturday, November 1 at 1130am – ‘Fall Foliage Fire Tower/Seneca Point Historical Tour’    Please bring your binoculars and meet at the Fire Tower Parking Lot for a 45 minute historical interpretive tour of the Fire Tower and Seneca Point.  Learn about local logging history, observe  Indian sign, and take a  breathtaking view of the fall foliage from the box at the very top of the Fire Tower which will be open until 230pm.  This is the last time the fire tower will be open to the public until next season.  (3 hrs)
