Trolley Museum
11 AM

Saturday, July 13, 2019


 Meet at the Lowe’s in Bartonsville at 9:30 AM
if you’d like to carpool 

Get ready for a delightful ride through some “local” history on July’s Shoot Out.  Ken Winham has picked the Electric Trolley Museum as our next destination and it looks like there’ll be plenty of great photo opportunities between the displays and actual trolleys. 

The museum is located on the Steamtown National Historic Site grounds in downtown Scranton.  Admission to the late 19th c. mill building which serves as the home for numerous interactive exhibits and displays is $6 for adults/$5 for seniors (62+).  But if you really want to participate in the full trolley experience the combo admission for the museum and a trolley ride is $10/$9 respectively.  The 45 minute ride covers 5 ½ miles over the Roaring Brook and through Scranton in a vintage trolley. 

So pack your cameras and a bag lunch and plan to meet at the Lowe’s in Bartonsville on Saturday, July 13, 2019 at 9:30 AM if you’d like to carpool.  We should arrive at the Trolley Museum by 11 AM if you’d rather meet there. 

For more information about the museum visit:

10 AM

Located in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreational Area, Zimmermann Farm was the family home of renowned metalsmith Marie Zimmermann (1879-1972).  The farm was purchased by her family in 1882 and their original farmhouse still stands.  A second home was built in the early 1900’s and Marie’s artistic acumen is evidenced in the Breton influenced Dutch Colonial style house.  A graduate of Pratt Institute, Marie’s abilities were in high demand between 1920 and 1930 but pressure from the government in 1940 to keep better track of the precious metals and gems she used caused Marie to sell her New York brownstone and finally settle down permanently at the farm. 

Along with Marie’s beautiful home, the property also includes a German barn and beautiful gardens.  The Friends of Marie Zimmerman volunteers will also be on hand to answer questions and give tours of the house.  This shoot out is a great opportunity to collect pictures to submit for our calendar project with the Friends of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, so don't miss out on this excellent opportunity!

Directions to Zimmermann Farm:

Take Rt. 209 N to the intersection with Rt. 739.  Continue through the traffic light and proceed 1.7 mi.  Zimmermann Farm Rd. will be on your left between mile marker 14 and 15 on Rt. 209 N.  The gate will be open and there should be signage showing you the way.  Park near the barns.

APRIL SHOOT OUT #2

The Schisler Museum is the only museum of its kind in the Pocono region.  Located on the campus of ESU it houses several displays depicting the Frozen North, The Cold Forest, Canyon Country, the Verdant East and the African Bush.  Ducks, deer, and insects complete the collection.  The museum hopes to inspire wonder, provide an up-close and personal view into the natural world that one does not normally get to see and to instill an understanding of how humans both interact with our world and help to preserve it.

Our private shoot out at the museum will allow us to photograph the displays without interruption from other patrons.  Tripods will be allowed during our visit.  So get your camera and gear ready for a great experience

April 2019 Shoot Out #1

Pocono Land Heritage Land Trust
Cranberry Creek Preserve


A Special Visit To the Gorge and Middle Falls

Sunday, April 14th - 1:00 PM

This is a special nature walk led by Don Miller, PHLT Naturalist.  Don will lead us into the heart of our Cranberry Creek Preserve - specifically the gorge and middle falls area, a more remote, less visited area of the Preserve.  This is a hardier walk with steeper terrain and off trail walking that is best done with the leaves off of the trees.  While it can be done even with snow on the ground, deep snow makes it even more strenuous, but also far more beautiful.

Don is leading this walk for PHLT and PPC members into this area of the Preserve.


Last minute update from walk leader Don Miller:

Yes, the Cranberry Creek Walk is still on for Sunday at 1:00, although it may be a bit rainy.  We are still going to hold the walk.  I was in a few days ago and the stream and the falls are in their full spring glory.

Always room for PPC Members on our PHLT Walks.  There are 22 people pre-registered, but the forecast for rain may chase some of these folks away.

So, bring your rain slicker, waterproof hiking boots and wet weather covers for the cameras.  It would be great to have you and others from PPC join us on the walk into PHLT’s Cranberry Creek Nature Preserve.

We will be meeting by 1:00 in the Paradise Price Preserve parking lot (where we met before) on Henry’s Crossing Road.  Just please advice PPC Members that the tunnel on Rt. 191 is closed, so you must use an alternate route to get there.

From East Stroudsburg take the Rt. 447 detour from North of Analomink to the Clark Road/Snowhill Road intersection.  Turn left on Clark Road, travel to interaction with Henry’s Crossing Road, turn left and enter Paradise Price Preserve parking area on left about 1 mike from Clark Road, just before crossing the railroad tracks.

From Stroudsburg or other areas of the County, it’s best to take Rt. 611 North, turn right at traffic light on Woodland Road past Mt. Airy.  Take Woodland Road to Rt. 940, turn right at the light in Paradise Valley on Rt. 940 East.  Travel East through Paradise Valley to the detour signs just before the Crescent Lodge.  Turn left on Rt. 390, travel uphill less than a mile, turn right on Cranberry Road, travel to intersection with Henry’s Crossing Road, turn left and travel about 1 mile, cross railroad tracks and turn right into Paradise Price Preserve parking lot.

February PHLT Shoot Out

Pocono Land Heritage Land Trust

Pomeroy McMichaels Creek Nature Preserve


Saturday, February 2nd at 10:00 AM

PPC At Pomeroy!
Despite frigid temperatures, we had a good turnout at for the Shoot Out and nature walk conducted by Don Miller, Naturalist and PHLT Board Member.

It was a great opportunity to get out in the fresh air, learn, socialize and, of course, take a lot of pictures.  The best of these images will be made available to Don and the PHLT for Trust useage.


PHLT recently closed on a 70+ acre tract on the McMichaels Creek in the vicinity of Stroud Township's Glenbrook Country Club.  This preserve is officially named the Pomeroy McMichaels Creek Nature Preserve which includes a very photogenic stretch of McMichaels Creek making it a beautiful property to explore and photograph with some easier winter access than our Cranberry Creek Preserve.  Access here is on level ground and is a relatively short hike. Don Miller plans to lead this hike/shoot out. 
 

The meeting place was at the Hickory Valley Park parking lot.

Pomeroy McMichaels Creek Nature Preserve (PHLT Photo)
From the Pocono Heritage Land Trust Website:

The Pomeroy McMichaels Creek Nature Preserve, named in honor of the 3 generations of the Pomeroy family who owned the property, is a 70+ acre piece of land containing a pristine secion of the McMichaels Creek in Hamilton Township.


Located between Hickory Valley and Turkey Hill and connecting the Glenbrook/Hickory Valley and Turkey Hill/Quiet Valley greenway areas, a newly protected natural area has been added to this McMichaels Creek greenway corridor. With this recent acquisition that was decades in the making, Pocono Heritage Land Trust has added over 70 acres of newly preserved greenway landscape to this beautiful and interesting geologic ecotone of the McMichaels Creek valley.


This newly protected piece of a large scale ecotone, this transition zone between Pocono and Cherry Creeks watersheds,this wild natural landscape influenced by glacial till and limestone (calcareous) ledges, is now finally permanently protected piece of property along the beautiful McMichaels Creek.

Early Fall on the McDade Trail

There's no question about it. Fall brings out the best of nature in the Poconos. This month's Shoot Out will get us out and about, discovering the early signs of this beautiful season. We'll meet up at the Egypt Mills Parking area on Rt. 209 N (on the right just past Egypt Mills Rd.) and wander along McDade Trail capturing the fading glory of wildflowers and other signs of the season.

May 12, 2018
2 to 4 pm
Whispering Pines Banquet Hall, Country Club of the Poconos
1445 Big Ridge Dr., East Stroudsburg, Pa. 18302

How do you see the world around you? Do you just see what others see, or do you see something different? One of the greatest challenges for photographers is discovering their unique vision. To do this we must learn to observe, imagine, and express.

In Danielle’s presentation she will discuss how taking an in-depth look at your surroundings through light, perspective, design and mood, can help you discover a new viewpoint and get more from your creative experience.

There is no charge for this presentation and it is open to the public.

Wreaths Across America is observed annually on the third Saturday of December.  It was begun in 1992 by Morrill Worcester of Harrington, Me. and in 2007 it became a non-profit organization.  What started in Arlington National Cemetery now takes places at cemeteries in all 50 states.  Christmas wreaths are placed at the graves of all veterans so that they will be remembered and honored for the sacrifices they made to preserve our freedoms.  This event is being sponsored by the Patriot Guard Riders, a U. S. based internet organization whose members attend the funerals of fallen soldiers, fire fighters and police when invited by the deceased's family, serve in honor guards at military funerals, fill in the ranks at burials of indigent and homeless veterans, greet returning troops, and volunteer in different veterans' organizations.  This will be a very moving experience for us to see and photograph.

Remember there will be an exhibit this fall of photos members have taken at the bog, now's a good
opportunity to get some great images for the exhibit and maybe for the Arts Grant that we applied for, we won’t know the outcome of that until September.

The fireworks of 4th of July have inspired us to paint with light ourselves. 
We'll have a number of creative light sources and a nice open space to play around in.
