Welcome to the County of Berks
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.
Contact Jennifer Brooks at 484-509-2667 for more information on any of these programs.

  • School Programs: The Environmental Education staff offers programs to schools seeking to further their classroom learning with hands-on field trips and on-site programs.  Students can solidify new concepts with our experiential programs ranging from water quality to soil exploration, and everything in between!  Every student participates and walks away with a greater understanding of our environment!
