The Delaware Highlands Conservancy
We are proud partners of The Delaware Highlands Conservancy, which works with land owners, local businesses and communities to protect the beautiful lands and pristine waters of the unique Upper Delaware River Region.
The breathtaking quality of our environment in the Pocono Mountains is the inspiration upon which Woodloch is built. We understand, as a business with a large ecological footprint that it is our responsibility to do what we can to promote care for the environment through our example.
We are exceptionally pleased to be a part of the Green Hotel Association and continue to work towards increasing our energy efficiency and reducing our waste production. We are happy to be joining in partnership with our local businesses to care for our natural resources. We have been inspired by the strength and perseverance of many and have joined in humanitarian causes large and small, knowing that every little bit counts.
We humbly ask that our guests contribute $2 from their stay to The Delaware Highlands Conservancy- in 2015, our guests raised over $15,000 for this worthy cause.
Bald Eagle Nesting Platforms
They’re American icons- and we invite them to be our “guests!” Our Bald Eagle nesting platform overlooks Lake Teedyuskung and provides rich hunting grounds for these majestic creatures.
What’s old becomes new once more! Every year, tens of thousands of pounds of glass, plastic, paper, wood and other materials are collected and repurposed to reduce waste- it’s “the circle of life!”
Trees can be so giving- so we try to keep as many in place as we can. When one absolutely needs to come down, we replace them with young saplings and nurture their growth so future generations can enjoy the same beauty of Woodloch as us!
Your “leftovers” shouldn’t have a shelf life of hundreds of years. That’s why Woodloch offers all “to go” items in paper biodegradable containers.
Dripping sinks and lights accidentally being left on for days are a thing of the past. Woodloch has made technological strides in water and electrical conservation- infrared sensors throughout the resort reduce unwanted consumption.
They’re the heroes that Woodloch needs: bats are Mother Nature’s pesticide. And they do a pretty good job of cutting down on insects around our property. So we think we’ll let them “hang” out for a bit.
Towel and Linen Reuse
Reusing in-room towels and linens during your stay saves detergent, water and electricity- YOU have the power to save!
There has been quite a buzz in the news about dwindling bee populations. They’re survival is essential to our own- that is why The Lodge at Woodloch is doing their part by keeping bees at Blackmoore Farms.
In 2015, we repurposed 3 tons of food into compost. We look to increase that total to 20 tons of compost this year- if all goes well, it will save $100,000 on waste management. Everybody wins!
