Geocache Description:


History

This 63-acre Yankee Run Nature Preserve was acquired in 2011, funded by Monroe County Open Space Program and a grant from the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. The preserve provides crucial protection for the headwaters of Yankee Run, a high quality headwater to Paradise Creek.

Yankee Run Nature Preserve contains a habitat mix of woodlands, springs, ponds and a headwater stream. The preserve also harbors local heritage, including a springhouse, a historic pumphouse and an artificial pond. The round trip will take you to the first stop, the pumphouse then here, past the springhouse.

Founded in 1984, Pocono Heritage Land Trust is a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the natural heritage of the Pocono Mountains region by conserving land and inspiring people to care for, enjoy, and explore their natural world.

No motorized vehicles, alcohol, fires, and hunting are allowed at the Yankee Run Natural Preserve. This geocache was placed with the permission of the Pocono Heritage Land Trust, including hide style and location, and for that, we thank them.
