2014 Highlights December 31, 2014

Cover of 20th Anniversary Commemorative Book

In 2014, we celebrated our 20th year at Salt Springs and published this book, lavishly illustrated, to tell our story. We still have some copies for sale.

Winter Camping

Boy scouts from southeastern Pennsylvania camped in January.

Rock Formation

The first guided hike of the year was held April 13th. They found a cool place to rest.

Annual Spring Cleaning Days

We do major park cleanups in April - Chainsaw Day (always first day of trout season) followed by Trail Day the next Saturday. Thanks to sponsors, we are able to feed all volunteers and give them a T-shirt. More pictures.

Theatre in the Park

The Endless Mountains Theatre Company brought Shakespeare to the park in May.

Bunny Trail

The Bunny Trail was featured this spring in a Times-Tribune article on best places to hike.

New Picnic Grove

Chris Ricci's Eagle Scout project was to create a handicap-accessible picnic area. Located at the base of the gorge, it is framed by Fall Brook and the remnants of the old woolen mill and methane gas well. More Pictures.

Fall Brook

Fall Brook is the best place to be on a hot summer day.

Learning Can Be Fun!

Kids attending Camp Cuff's summer camp learned about watersheds. Here they're flowing along with Silver Creek to the Chesapeake Bay.

Williams Pavilion

The new Williams Pavilion is a testament to what volunteers and donations do for our park. More pictures.

Historical Program

George Cummings, 18th century history enthusiast, shared his antiques and knowledge with us in July. Here he explains that chunks of sugar were nipped off sugar cones (sold wrapped in blue and stamped with the seller's seal) as needed.

Deer in the Campgrounds

A small herd of deer have been browsing the campground this year. Four to six can be spotted on the pavilion lawn on quiet days.

Woofstock

It's all about the dogs! - and all other animals True Friends Animal Welfare Center helps. True Friends held their annual fundraiser at Salt Springs for several years in August until the Barn Pavilion was washed away in the 2018 flood.

Trail Race

The second Field, Forest, and Falls trail race was held before the Celebration on August 30. Ninety-eight people registered, and 93 ran.

Snake!

What's that?? There's always something new to delight young and old at our annual Celebration. More pictures.

Wedding

Weddings take place nearly every weekend in the summer. On September 6, Jen Houghtaling and Tad Johnson were married at the pavilion.

Pumpkin Carving

Halloween Fest! This annual party starts with pumpkin carving...

Haunted Place?

and ends in our "haunted" woods!

Indoor Wedding

When it's mid-November and you want to get married at Salt Springs, consider the Wheaton House for an intimate ceremony. Greg Steinberg and Emily Novitski found it the perfect place to begin their new life together. More pictures.

Silver Creek

From January through December, Salt Springs is yours to experience and explore.
