The extensive wetlands of the Mountsberg Conservation Area are a birdwatcher’s paradise. Waterfowl and shorebirds clamber about a misty lake while hundreds of warblers flit through forest and meadow. Nature surrounds you at this scenic conservation area that has great hiking and cross-country ski trails outfitted with boardwalks birdfeeders and interpretive lookouts.
You can even take in that first taste of spring on a horse drawn wagon ride in the Mountsberg Sugar Bush where maple syrup, pancakes and taffy on the snow create indelible family memories. You can even come face to face with a great horned owl. Browse the exhibit gallery or gift shop or see a live bird presentation during a year-round program with many special events. The call of the wild awaits you at this exciting conservation area.
