Washington Crossing Historic Park
Visit the site of the most famous event in Upper Makefield’s history – George Washington’s crossing of the Delaware River in 1776! You can also stroll through Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve, which preserves the native plants of Pennsylvania.
Delaware Canal State Park
The Delaware Canal is the only continuously-intact canal remaining from the great towpath era of the early and mid-19th century.
The University of Rhode Island has developed a comphrensive, yet simple website for you to report any tick findings, identify ticks, and any and all news related to ticks, including Pennsyvania. We encourage you to visit this site to learn how to manage ticks when enjoying the outdoors. http://www.tickencounter.org/ .
