A childhood interest in nature led to a career protecting forests. Gifford Pinchot became one of the founders of the conservation movement. After graduating from Yale University, Pinchot went to France and became the first American trained in forestry. A good friend of President Theodore Roosevelt, Pinchot was named Chief Forester of the U.S. Division of Forestry and served from 1898 to 1910. With the guidance of Roosevelt and Pinchot, over 200 million acres of national forest came under scientific land management. Policies developed by Pinchot help guide most national and state forests today. “Among the many, many public officials who under my administration rendered literally invaluable service to the people of the United States, Gifford Pinchot on the whole, stood first.” - President Theodore Roosevelt Gifford Pinchot became governor of Pennsylvania in 1922. A tireless worker, he often worked 16 hours a day. Pinchot Enjoy the Winter ICE SAFETY: Ice thickness is not monitored. For your safety, make sure ice is at least 4” thick for a single user and 7” thick for a small group. For iceboating, make sure ice is at least 6” thick. Always carry safety equipment. ICE FISHING: When conditions permit, ice fishing is a popular attraction on the 340-acre Pinchot Lake. Anglers most often catch largemouth bass, walleye, muskellunge, crappies, and sunfish. ICE SKATING: Ice skating is permitted when natural conditions allow it. ICEBOATING: Iceboats must display a current state park launch permit. CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING: With adequate snow cover, all trails and many other areas of the park provide excellent opportunities for cross-country skiing. Redbud Diabase rock underlies most of the park and was created when molten rock intruded the sandstone and melted it into a new kind of rock. Many of the diabase rocks have unique cracks that formed as the rocks slowly cooled. The numerous boulders and rock outcroppings become more visible after the leaves have fallen. A brochure about the diabase rock formations is available at the park office, contact station, and at the Environmental Learning Center. The diverse habitats of Gifford Pinchot State Park support a variety of wildlife through all seasons. Winter is a good time to see woodpeckers and evidence of their presence. The park is home to at least seven species of woodpeckers. Spring is the time for wildflowers. The forest floor transforms into a carpet of bluebells, spring beauties, and many other short-lived flowers. Before the redbud’s leaves emerge, the tree bursts into a brilliant display of pink to lavender flowers. Also during the spring, male largemouth bass make nests and aggressively defend their territory and fry (baby fish). created the first Pennsylvania state budget, erased the state’s debt, and gave himself a pay cut. Pinchot was not afraid of a fight. Often at odds with political parties, Pinchot fought hard for the people. Several times a week Pinchot held office hours and anyone could walk in and talk to him. “A public official is there to serve the public and not run them.” - Gifford Pinchot In 1930, Pinchot was elected to a second term as governor and labored for employment improvements during the Great Depression. Pinchot set up work camps throughout the state that became the models for the Civilian Conservation Corps of President Franklin Roosevelt. Pinchot’s work camps built 20,000 miles of paved roads for “taking the farmer out of the mud.” These paved country roads made it easier for farmers to get from the farm to the market. The first “Pinchot Road” crosses the park, now PA 177. Always progressive, Pinchot was the first governor to have two women on his cabinet. During World War II, Pinchot developed a water-gathering device and fishing kits for use in navy life rafts. Throughout his life, Gifford Pinchot spoke and campaigned for political reform and improved forest management. After writing his autobiography, Gifford Pinchot died of leukemia in 1946. In 1961, Gifford Pinchot State Park was dedicated by Governor David L. Lawrence. INFORMATION AND RESERVATIONS NATURAL HISTORY Gifford Pinchot State Park is an area of forest surrounded by farm fields which makes the park an ideal rest stop for migrating forest birds. Warblers, vireos, and thrushes stop to rest and eat before flying on to their breeding or winter homes. Pinchot Lake and its shoreline wetlands lure many species of waterfowl like mergansers, snow geese, mallards, loons, and other ducks which can be seen swimming, diving, and dabbling for vegetation, insects, and small fish. During the summer, eastern bluebirds search for food for their growing chicks. Camouflaged spotted fawns hide in the Sharp-lobed hepatica, a spring ephemeral wildflower forests and fields. Along the lake shoreline dragonflies and damselflies hunt for insect prey. Butterflies and moths reach their peak numbers and can be seen flying from flower to flower, including the largest butterfly in North America, the giant swallowtail butterfly. In autumn, when the deciduous trees lose their leaves, the evergreen trees become more noticeable. In the park, the oval shaped red cedar tree is common in old fields and provides habitat for oaks, hickories, and other forest trees to sprout, which will eventually supplant the cedar.
