Honey Hollow & Bucks County Audubon Society

Created in 1939, the Honey Hollow Watershed Conservation Area was the first small upland watershed in agricultural use to demonstrate that soil, water, and wildlife conservation and flood prevention could be achieved through cooperative local action. The Honey Hollow Watershed consists of five farms totaling about 650 acres located along the Delaware River north of New Hope, Pennsylvania. It was established when local farmers, dismayed about the erosion of their fields, applied to the Soil Conservation Service for assistance in developing a comprehensive soil conservation plan. More National Park Service Info...

The Honey Hollow Environmental Education Center is located on the Honey Hollow Watershed in Solebury Township. The Center is open to school and community groups for educational programs throughout the year. Because of the early conservation work carried out by local farmers and the Soil Conservation Service, the entire watershed of the Honey Hollow Creek was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1969. It remains the only agriculturally based National Historic Landmark in the United States. Educational programs have been conducted here for over 60 years. The land is owned jointly by the Bucks County Audubon Society, Heritage Conservancy and the Crooks family. The Center is operated by the Bucks County Audubon Society.

Ralph Stover State Park - High Rocks State Park

Ralph Stover State Park marks the site of a water powered grain mill of the late 18th century. The park, named for Ralph Stover who owned and operated the mill, contains remnants of the mill, including the millrace. This millrace diverted the water from above the dam to power the mill.

Since the gift of this property for use as a state park, from the Stover heirs to the Commonwealth in 1931, an additional property known as the "High Rocks" was added through the donation of the late James A. Michener, a noted author. This area is popular for its spectacular views and geological features and is used extensively as a rock-climbing site. The 200-foot sheer rock face of this cliff offers a unique challenge to the experienced climber.

Ralph Stover State Park is 2 miles north of Point Pleasant on State Park Road and Stump Road. Situated in eastern Bucks County, the park contains 45 acres along the Tohickon Creek. Recreational facilities were first opened in 1935 after development by the Federal Works Progress Administration (WPA). Today, the park offers visitors a variety of activities and facilities. Along Tohickon Creek and adjoining Tohickon Valley County Park.

Boating, Fishing, Biking, Hiking, Canoeing, Picnicking & Whitewater; when high water conditions exist, Tohickon Creek offers a challenging course for closed deck canoes and kayaks. Whitewater craft may be launched in the park. Please do not block parking areas and roadways. At the end of March and the beginning of November there are planned whitewater releases from Lake Nockamixon. For information call Delaware Canal State Park. Hours: Sunrise to Sunset.

Tyler State Park

Tyler State Park Before becoming a state park, the land was owned by Mr. and Mrs. George F. Tyler who purchased the land between 1919 and 1928. Their first purchase was the Solly Farm, currently leased to Hosteling International at the north end of the park. The Solly House served as the TylerÕs country home until the mansion was constructed. The mansion is now a part of the Bucks County Community College.

The Schofield Ford Covered Bridge, Built in 1874, is the longest covered bridge in Bucks County. In 1991, this county landmark burned. Using authentic materials and methods, a group of concerned citizens from various parts of the county undertook a united effort to rebuild this historic 166-foot, two-span bridge.

This march, at one of the lowest points of the American Revolution, gave the Patriots new hope after their failed effort to keep the British from occupying New York City.
