Nature Walk with Acclaimed Naturalist

Monday, July 27, 2009 (Shawnee on Delaware, Pennsylvania) – Acclaimed naturalist, John Serrao, will be hosting Guided Nature Walks at The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort every Sunday, through the summer, from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm.

John Serrao is one of the names to know when it comes to the outdoors in the Pocono Mountains.  Not only is John a naturalist, but also the author of six nature books, Reptiles and Amphibians of the Poconos and The Natural Pocono Mountains to name just a couple.  There is no doubt that this is an in-depth tour back to nature. Bring your camera to snap some great shots during your walk of nature finds and with Serrao himself.

"Shawnee's surroundings are some of the most beautiful in the area. We have such a unique setting, being located on the edge of the wild and scenic Delaware River, offering these blessings to our guests and the public is almost a civic duty," said Rob Howell, General Manager of The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort.

Shawnee recently published a The Shawnee Nature Trail, a self-guided interpretive booklet, in partnership with John Serrao which outlines all of the trees on the property.

"Through the process of making Shawnee's Tree Walk Booklet, it was uncovered that Shawnee is the home of some very unique trees including, perhaps, the largest Ginkgo Biloba Tree in the state," said Howell.

A $10.00 registration fee applies to guests of Wyndham Village and the general public. There is no admittance fee for Shawnee Inn and the Legacy Collection guests. To register, please call 1-800-SHAWNEE.
