Connect – Engage – Inspire

The professional and dedicated staff of the Outdoor Connections Department strives to provide high quality learning experiences for a diverse audience. From public programs in the parks to scout programs on the farm to classroom programs in the schools, our staff seeks to connect you to our natural and historical resources, engage you through a variety of fun, innovative programs and inspire you to help us protect and conserve the natural and historical features of Delaware County.

Our staff members continually add to their interpretive and environmental education experience by attending professional development opportunities to stay on top of the most up-to-date trends in the field. Whether it be live animal displays in the Deer Haven Park Visitor Center, a thought provoking Facebook video, hands-on programs, or a one-on-one conversation on the trail, our goal is to make your experience with Preservation Parks a memorable one. We encourage you to check out our quarterly Program Calendar for a list of current programs. If you would like to schedule an outreach program for your classroom, scout group or other community organization, contact Our outdoor is open and waiting for you!
