Summer Flowers at Jacobsburg State Park

The rolling terrain of Jacobsburg Environmental Education Center is on the northern edge of the Lehigh Valley near the foothills of the Kittatinny Ridge. Habitats range from fields in various stages of successional growth to mature forests dominated by oak trees.

Approximately 2.5 miles of the beautiful Bushkill Creek and its tributary, Sobers Run, wind through the park property.
