Synopsis

An illustrated guidebook that describes forty-nine natural places in Pennsylvania to explore and enjoy.In this sequel to the popular guidebook Outbound Journeys in Pennsylvania, Marcia Bonta describes forty-nine new outstanding natural places in Pennsylvania, featuring their old-growth forests, scenic rivers, spectacular waterfalls, rare botanical localities, outstanding wetlands, unique geological formations, endangered ecosystems, and special birdwatching areas. The book is divided into three sections--Eastern, Central, and Western Pennsylvania--and covers unique natural features in state parks, state forests, private nature sanctuaries, state game lands, county parks, environmental education centers, and a National Military Park. Each chapter discusses the flora and fauna of the site, as well as its unique features and also contains historical information so that people can learn about Pennsylvania's natural heritage without necessarily visiting the places. Bonta gives precise directions on how to reach each area, most of which are easily accessible from the major population centers of the state. In addition, she offers complete information on each site, including the best trails to follow, telephone numbers, hours, availability of group tours, and admission charges. A special section on sources and the detailed bibliography give readers more information on how to obtain maps and books that will add to their appreciation and knowledge of the places and natural history covered in the book.Most of the outings are not too strenuous and are ideal for families and groups of all kinds and ages. Aimed at a broad audience of naturalists, both armchair and active, More Outbound Journeys in Pennsylvania will also interest birdwatchers, hikers, campers, fishermen, hunters, canoeists, and wildflower and plant enthusiasts. Anyone who is interested in outdoor Pennsylvania can use this book to discover and enjoy the natural beauty of the Keystone State.
