As we continue to navigate COVID, we are working on a variety of programs and events.  These programs would not be possible without the generous support of our partners- Slatington Borough, the Borough of Walnutport, Washington Township, Northern Lehigh School District, as well as the Rotary Club of Slatington, the Leona Gruber Charitable Trust, Wildlands Conservancy, Northampton County, and the Mickley Fravel Charitable Trust.

Thank you all! 


Be sure to check out our Program page for a continually growing list of offerings!  

Also, please click on the below link to complete a brief online survey that will help us to offer and promote the programs that YOU want to see!  We also want to know how you think we are doing!
