MILFORD - Streams and waterfalls, white-tailed deer, black bear, bald eagle, trout, mountain laurel and the ruffed grouse are all symbols of Pike County’s wondrous natural surroundings. The Pike County Conservation District has commissioned a very special cotton coverlet - “Pike County
Naturally” to represent the wealth of the County’s natural and historic resources. The 100% cotton coverlet also pays tribute to Gifford Pinchot, America’s first forester, turn-of-the-century conservationist and Governor of Pennsylvania, whose family home “Grey Towers” is depicted in the design. Capturing the beauty of the Delaware River is the image of America’s oldest suspension bridge, the Roebling Aqueduct whose engineer John Roebling designed the Brooklyn Bridge. The coverlet provides not only a great representation of the valuable natural resources, which make Pike County such an attractive place to live but also benefits conservation education programs of the Conservation District. This coverlet is available for $53 including tax at the Pike County Conservation District office on Route 402 in Blooming Grove or contact the District office at 570-226-8220 or at Carol Ann’s Linen Closet at 317 Broad Street in Milford.
