The Who Behind the How
At Wildlands, our mission is strengthened by our community. Nowhere is that more evident than among Wildlands' employees who educate and inspire future environmental stewards. Environmental Educator Sarah Kovalchik shares about how she came to Wildlands, and what her experience working with us has meant to her!
My first semester earning my bachelors degree, one of my professors left to work full time at Wildlands, which he spoke very highly of and led me to look there for an internship in my field of study, Environmental Science. My passion for the environment, educating the public, and desire to be outside as much as possible really seemed to fit the Wildlands mission. This summer has opened my eyes to the next generation of eco-warriors. Many campers of all ages this summer have shown genuine care and concern for our planet. Seeing the campers light up when we teach them something new about our environment and nature (in my case, it's usually plant related), makes it all worth it!”

Bushkill Creek Restoration
Wildlands is so excited about our current project, done in tandem with partners, to restore the Bushkill Creek in Northampton County! Joe Baylog, president of Forks of the Delaware Trout Unlimited, says of the project:
“Our hope is that people will begin to rediscover the Bushkill and get to know firsthand what a fabulous resource we have in our communities.” says Baylog. "A resource like the Bushkill requires some attention from time to time and can't just be taken for granted or it will continue to diminish. We want people to spend time here, wet their toes in the cool water, skip a couple stones, observe the creekside wildlife, or maybe catch, and release, a wild brown trout. The more people feel connected to the Bushkill, the more it will be valued. A healthier stream environment is better for everyone; it's a win-win.
