Berks County Parks and Recreation
Environmental Education Programs and Activities
The Berks County Parks and Recreation Department Environmental Education programs educate individuals of all ages through meaningful experiences. Placing an emphasis on hands-on activities, we focus on creating awareness about the natural world and how all living organisms are interconnected. Whether it's getting wet viewing aquatic life on our streams and ponds, or observing owls call to one another on a cold winter's eve, participants become fully immersed in our engaging and interactive programs.

Thank you to the Tulpehocken Chapter, Trout Unlimited, Inc. and Cabela’s for their generous donation of children’s rain boots that will be used while conducting stream and pond studies within the Berks County Parks System. Due to their wonderful donation all children can now enjoy the amazing aquatic world located in their own backyards! We are overjoyed to have the opportunity to provide boots for them to aid in their explorations and hands-on discoveries while participating in our wonderful Environmental Education programs!
