*Directions and advice on visiting each natural area
Throughout Pennsylvania, within the state forest system, are 61 officially designated Natural Areas, each offering a bit of wildness deemed worthy of protection: rare-bird breeding sites, stands of old-growth trees, fragile wetlands, ice age remnants, mineral-rich mountainsides. To experience firsthand the unique features of each natural area, nature writer Charles Fergus spent a year visiting all 61. In this information-filled book, he reports on what he found, offering readers a guided tour of some of natural Pennsylvania's most distinctive places. He also provides information on how to visit the areas, each of which is open to the public.
Charles Fergus is the author of numerous books on nature and the outdoors, including Wildlife of Pennsylvania (0-8117-2899-4), Thornapples (0-8117-2946-X), Swamp Screamer, A Rough-Shooting Dog, and Summer at Little Lava. He lives in central Pennsylvania.
