ForEvergreen Nature Preserve - Analomink, PA

Explore the ForEvergreen Nature Preserve— "where the Brodhead doubles"—on a historic flyfishing section of Brodhead Creek. Both native and invasive plant communities and wildlife habitat areas are re-establishing on the former golf course. A nature preserve of unique grassy meadows, ponds and wetlands in the midst of forested hills.

A nature museum is planned. Brodhead Watershed Association and Pocono Heritage Land Trust have a launched a capital campaign to renovate the former golf course clubhouse into a nature museum, education/meeting space and office for BWA/PHLT. Stroud Township owns the land and has awarded a long-term lease to BWA/PHLT. Stroud Township acquired the building as part of its purchase of the 42-acre former golf course with Open Space funds, renaming the site ForEvergreen Nature Preserve. 

Parking is available  on Cherry Lane Road, Analomink, PA.

Slide 2 - caption states 'bald eagle reacts to unwelcome visitor'; looks like an osprey to me - and I'm only a beginner birder compared to most; you guys are naturalists?? :-)

Slide 2 - As a beginner birder you are correct. The “unwelcome visitor” is an Osprey “stooping” on the perched male Bald Eagle who was perched to protect their nearby nest. Being raptor competitors for both habitat and food (primarily fish - trout from the Brodhead Creek and bass/panfish fron nearby lakes the two birds often have confrontations. The larger Eagle was just protecting himself from the Osprey’s aerial objections. Photo Credit - Russ Thrall III, Brodhead Chapter of Trout Unlimited
