BTVFC has placed a burn ban into effect immediately from 11:00am on March 25th 2024 until further notice. This ban is in effect due to the PA DCNR Forestry service predictions with dry undergrowth and fine fuels along with low relative humidity levels. Even with the recent rains, the ground is moist but the fine fuels and brush are dry and can easily burn leading to fast-spreading wildfires. Camp fires in a camp fire ring are permitted as long as you have a garden hose nearby to quickly extinguish any small fires.

Bushkill Township Yard Waste Facility will open on April 3, 2024 through November 27, 2024. Days and hours will be Wednesday & Friday 7am to 3pm, Saturday 8am to 12pm. For more information click here.

Welcome To Bushkill Township

Bushkill Township Bushkill Township is located in northcentral Northampton County. Until formation on August 13, 1813, the land area of Bushkill Township was part of its parent municipality, Plainfield Township. Before that time, the area of Bushkill Township was often referred to as "The Plains." On the north the Township is bordered by the Blue Mountain and Monroe County, with the Appalachian Trail running all along the summit of Blue Mountain. Plainfield Township and the Borough of Wind Gap border in the northeast, with Plainfield Township extending along the east to the Borough of Stockertown at the southeastern corner. The lengthy western border is with Moore Township, and the shorter southern border is with Upper Nazareth Township, just north of the Borough of Nazareth. The Township is approximately 25 square miles and has over 55 miles of municipal roadways.

Bushkill Creek, a High Quality-Cold Water Fishery, bisects the Township from the northwest to the southeast, and was once the source of power for numerous mills found within the Township and downstream. Sobers Run, an Exceptional Value stream, is entirely within Bushkill Township and was an important source of water for farms and mills along its course to the Bushkill Creek. Both streams support native and wild reproducing trout populations, and both exhibit beautiful wooded greenways, which in recent years have become a focal point for land preservation within the Township. Many greenway areas now contain public trails and select properties have been opened for public fishing; all accomplished through the Township's Open Space Program and various funding partners.
