BUSHKILL, PA (Winter 2014) - Fernwood Resort has once again joined with the Pocono Environmental Education Center (PEEC) in Bushkill, PA to create packages that include accommodations at Fernwood and events at PEEC. Gina Bertucci, spokesperson for Fernwood, comments, "The natural beauty of the Pocono Mountain region is highlighted through special programs offered by the Pocono Environmental Education Center. We continue to partner with them to create easy access to the National Park and the programs that give guests the opportunity to experience a variety of activities surrounded by nature."
PEEC is located within the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area which offers 68,000 acres of pristine woodlands, rivers and streams. Bertucci continues, "Fernwood borders the National Recreation Area which allows us to offer guests programs that center around this amazingly beautiful National Park." The Eagle Watch Weekends are Saturday, January 25th and Sunday, February 2nd from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. The two night weekend stay starts at just $164 per night and includes two vouchers for the PEEC Eagle Watch and two nights of studio villa accommodations. Guests will join guides from PEEC to watch eagles soaring, feeding and nesting.
Bertucci continues, “It is recommended you bring a lunch and dress in warm layers for an experience you will long remember. The majestic birds are something to see.” PEEC was created for students, teachers, families, Scouts, birders, botanists, photographers, hikers and anyone else interested in learning about the natural world in a natural and informal setting.

Bertucci concludes, "We offer all the amenities of a four season resort making it possible to create a mini getaway that combines the luxuries of a resort with the opportunity to hike and play in the National Recreation Area."
