The Schuylkill River in Upper Providence Township forms a natural backdrop to this 15-acre display of wild animals and raptors indigenous to Pennsylvania. Picnicking and fishing are popular along the river, and a short, scenic hike will lead you the Heritage of the Schuylkill Canal in Mont Clare.

In one visit to the Park’s Wildlife Center you can see foxes, rabbits, a bald eagle, many varieties of owls, hawks, turkeys and an assortment of farm animals. A seasonal butterfly garden and turtle pond will delight all ages. A newly opened permanent exhibit entitled, Schuylkill Wilds features creatures found in and around the Schuylkill River. Turtles, frogs, fish, snakes, a skunk and a mink are viewable throughout this indoor space. Additionally, deer and wolves will soon be returning to the Park. Fun events for the family, especially young children, happen throughout the year.
