Pennsylvania's Conservation Heritage Museum
Take a look at Pennsylvania’s Conservation Heritage Museum, which was recently built as an addition to the existing Visitor’s Center at Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area in Lancaster County. Join us on a virtual tour of the museum to celebrate Pennsylvania’s rich and storied wildlife conservation heritage!
Middle Creek Visitor Center
Join Middle Creek Manager Lauren Ferreri for a virtual tour of the Visitors Center at Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area. Learn about the special adaptions of bird beaks and feet; tracks and signs of common wildlife at Middle Creek; how animal teeth differ depending on what the animal eats; manmade bird nesting structures; how biologists count thousands of snow geese; and take an up close look at the many waterfowl species that visit Middle Creek each year, pelts of different Pennsylvania mammals and bird nests and eggs of all sizes.
Join us on a tour of the Game Commission’s Howard Nursery with the agency’s Forest Nursery Manager. Tour the grounds to see where the bird boxes and other wildlife homes are made and seedlings for wildlife habitat are grown.

Take a virtual trip down the easy, 0.4-mile, paved path to Willow Point with Middle Creek staff. Learn a bit about Middle Creek history, snow geese, tundra swans and the important role Middle Creek plays as a stopover for migrating waterfowl.
Take a virtual trip on this moderate 1.4-mile loop from the Visitors Center, up to a ridge with a scenic view of the lake below, through forest, field and wetlands. Learn about the habitats you pass through on the trail and the wildlife that lives there.
