DCNR/Jacobsburg Environmental Education Center is sponsoring "Birding by Kayak: Long Pond Preserve," from 5 p.m. until dusk on Friday, July 6.

Long Pond in the Pocono Mountains has been called "one of the world's Top Last Great Places" by the Nature Conservancy. This will be a great time of day to observe and listen to the sounds of Long Pond's interesting bird life.

Registration is required. Fee is required, which goes toward educational programming at Jacobsburg. Must supply own kayak/canoe and life vest.

For more information and to register, contact Rick Wiltraut at (610) 646-2810 or rwiltraut@pa.gov.
