BUSHKILL, PA (Spring 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 Spring Waterfall tour focuses on the variety of natural waterfalls in and around the Park and the Delaware River Valley. Guests meet at PEEC on Saturday, April 5 at 1:00 pm then carpool to various locations within the park for the four hour tour. The Fernwood package held April 4-6, 2014 includes two nights of studio villa accommodations and two tickets to the waterfall tour for $156 per night.
Bertucci continues, "It is calming and refreshing to see the waterfalls as they bloom into spring. They are hidden treasures that not many people have the chance to experience." 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. For PEEC information go to their website at peec.org. 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."
