Explore Nature Nearby

Discover the natural wonders of the world around you in the Lehigh River Watershed: Explore Nature Nearby exhibit gallery.

Wander through the Pocono Ravine, a limestone cave adorned in stalagmites and stalactites and follow the sound of water from the nearby waterfall to find the real stars of this show – four adorable North American river otters!

Brace yourself for an experience that not only surrounds you with the breathtaking flora and fauna of the Lehigh Valley but also brings you face-to-face with these playful aquatic celebrities. 

This adventure, developed in collaboration with the Wildlands Conservancy, teaches us about the wonders of our natural environment while being thoroughly entertained by our otter friends. It’s not just an exhibit;  it’s a front-row ticket to the importance of cherishing and preserving the beauty of the Lehigh Valley.
