Wildlife Watching

You've probably heard that the Pennsylvania Wilds is home to the largest elk herd in the Northeast. We're pretty proud of that, but we're a lot more than elk. Look closely and you might see bobcats, river otters, minks, and more. Listen, too-our 375 species of songbirds are always putting on a show. Falcons, hawks, deer, and plenty of other wild creatures make this region an Eden for nature lovers.
