A Lesson from the Lorax

Come enjoy the original Dr. Seuss movie classic The Lorax... with some popcorn of course! Learn how the Lorax spoke for the trees, as the greedy Once-ler chopped them down to meet his highly profitable needs. In the end, with all the trees gone, even the Once-ler gets the message. After the movie, help plant a tree in the park.

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
 


Invasion of the Crusty Crayfish


The French Creek has been overrun by the invasive “Rusty Crayfish”, moving upstream from the Schuylkill River. This crayfish is larger, more aggressive and can eat twice as much as native crayfish. Help park staff catch crayfish, identify the native and non-native species, and protect our valued aquatic habitat.
