Plan a memorable day of birdwatching, nature walking, fishing, picnicking, or all of the above at an outdoor destination that offers a little bit of everything, for everyone! Located west of State College along Bald Eagle Creek, Soaring Eagle Wetland (formerly the Governor Tom Ridge Wetlands Preserve) was established and donated to the Wildlife for Everyone Foundation in 2010. The 135-acre property includes 55 acres of wetland and showcases a natural area supporting wildlife health while offering unique recreational opportunities for people. This destination also includes a path and fishing platform with ADA-approved access on Bald Eagle Creek.

Hike Distance (miles): 1.0

How to Prepare:

  • Sturdy shoes and a filled water bottle (32 oz. or more per adult) are necessary for all outings. Water filling stations are not available at most locations.
  • Sun and insect protection recommended such as sunscreen, insect repellent, long sleeves/pants, or hat.
  • Limited Cell Service at this location - bring or download maps to use offline.

Important Location / GPS Information:

To find the Centred Outdoors events, set your GPS for 6543 South Eagle Valley Road, Julian PA.

The entrance is not well-marked. Look for the Centred Outdoors flags and directional signs when approaching the address. You must cross over the railroad tracks when first entering the lot. Keep alert for passing trains, there is no signal or crossing barrier at this entrance.

There is a secondary portion of the wetlands that is on the opposite side of the road, about 1 mile from the Soaring Eagle Wetland. That area is called the Galen and Nancy Dreibelbis Viewing Area. That area is not part of our guided outings, but you can visit there anytime on your own!

For self-guided explorations, the trails are open to the public throughout the year.
