Chronic Wasting Disease

Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD), which is an always fatal disease to deer and elk, has been detected in all or portions of Clear Creek State Forest.

Hunters should be aware of special rules and regulations that apply to deer harvested within the Disease Management Area (DMA). It is recommended that those deer be tested for the disease.

Additional information about CWD can be found at the Pennsylvania Game Commission and the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture websites.

Don’t Move Firewood

To help protect the forest from invasive insects that can kill trees and devastate the ecosystem, please do not transport firewood over long distances. Firewood can harbor insects such as emerald ash borer. Cut or purchase your firewood where you intend to burn it.
