Educational Programs (June & July)

Father's Day Night Hike: Saturday, June 19 at 9:00pm to 10:30pm

Come celebrate Father's Day with a night hike at Oil Creek State Park. We'll take a short stroll along the Blood Farm Interpretive Trail at the Blood Farm Day Use Area, exploring the night life of Oil Creek along the way.

This trail is a fairly flat, easy loop that is approximately half a mile long. Please bring flashlights, and dress for the weather!

Registration is required. To register, visit Father's Day Night Hike - DCNR Calendar of Events ( or call the park naturalist at 814.676.1810.

Masks are currently required for unvaccinated participants.

Knotweed Knock-Out: Sunday, June 27 at 1:00pm to 4:00pm

Join the park naturalist for an incredibly important volunteer day at Oil Creek State Park. Japanese Knotweed has invaded the park, and we need your help to fight back. This plant can be found along almost the entire length of Oil Creek, including the roughly 12 miles of creek that flows through the park.

We'll spend some time getting familiar with identifying Japanese Knotweed before heading out with loppers to cut it to the ground. We'll have to remove every bit we cut to avoid starting new colonies. This event will target our day use areas.

All necessary equipment will be provided including gloves and loppers. Please note that Japanese Knotweed thrives in wet areas. You will want to dress accordingly by wearing clothes that you don't mind getting wet, and bringing a dry set to change into. Bring waders if you have them.

Registration is required. To register, visit Knotweed Knock-Out - DCNR Calendar of Events ( or call the park naturalist at 814.676.1810.
