This is the official account for Jennings Environmental Education Center staff. Jennings is one of several state parks specifically dedicated to providing environmental education and interpretation to the community. Jennings provides a unique combination of prairie and forest, which offers a wide array of resource and education opportunities. One of the park’s main features, the 20-acre prairie ecosystem, is home to distinctive prairie plants and the endangered massasauga rattlesnake. The most noteworthy and spectacular prairie flower is the blazing star. Jennings was the first reserve established in Pennsylvania to protect an individual plant species and remains the only public and protected prairie in the Commonwealth. A variety of programs that increase knowledge and awareness of the beauty and importance of our natural resources are available for children, teachers and the general public.
