AUSTIN — Spend some time outdoors learning about the woods and waters of Pennsylvania this weekend at Sinnemahoning State Park.

During Underwater Wonders on Saturday, with two sessions to be held from 1:30-2:15 p.m. and 2:30-3:15 p.m., participants will wade into the cool water to learn about crayfish and other creek dwellers. Goggles, nets and containers will be provided. All ages are welcome. Parents will need to assist younger children. Limit of 12 people per session. The event is located at the 40 Maples Day Use Area.

Also, a PBS Nature video, “An Original Duck-umentary,” will be shown from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday in the campground amphitheater. The film features dozens of duck species as they waddle, glide, dive, and dabble their way into your heart. The film will be cancelled if it rains. All are welcome.

A nature walk called Meet the Trees will take place from 9 to 10:15 a.m. Sunday. Join the new park naturalist, Nick Micsky, and get to know the local trees. Learn quick tips to identify 10 common trees of Sinnemahoning, then take a short walk with Micsky to practice. All ages are welcome. There is a limit of 15 people. Meet at the campground amphitheater.
