Snow Geese of Middlecreek

Every year near the beginning of March hundreds of visitors pay a visit to a small wildlife preserve on the Lancaster/Lebanon county border. More importantly is what all these spectators flock to see. During this time of the year, snow geese migrate thousands of miles to touch down in this unique site. This year there are approximately 45,000 geese migrating here. The geese fly as far as eastern Alaska to western Greenland. The rest of the year the wildlife conserve teaches us all the importance of nature and our job to preserve it.
