National Park Service


Children are naturally curious about the world around them. The program "River Readings" is for children in Pre-K through 2nd grade. They will learn about plants, insects and wildlife that can be found in the Upper Delaware River Valley. Children will explore these areas through stories and hands-on activities.

River Readings will take place every Thursday morning at 10:30am beginning July 2, 2015 and will run through August 13th. The program will be held at the historic Zane Grey Museum in Lackawaxen, PA. Children will sit under the shade of maple trees where once famed western writer Zane Grey lived and wrote.

To register for this program or for additional information please contact Chief of Interpretation Ingrid Peterec at 570-685-4871 or email: e-mail us

The program is free of charge. There is a limit of 20 children for this program.
