News of note
Drop by the State Museum of Pennsylvania this afternoon at 5:30 for Third in the Burg, the third Friday of the month cultural event in Harrisburg. This month features our own Marci with an introduction to Mira Lloyd Dock and Gifford Pinchot, some hands-on tree identification with Weiser State Forest, and everyone's favorite bear. No, not Yogi. Smokey, of course! Free admission, free refreshments, and a look at the newly renovated Mammal Hall.
The weather just seems to be playing havoc with plans to launch the new Friends of Worlds End. Marci can tell you it really does feel like the edge of the universe when there's snow falling so enthusiastically in those beautiful Endless Mountains. Another meeting (and the official group launch) WILL take place once Spring really has sprung.
Likewise, the to-be-formed Friends of Rothrock will have their second meeting on April 24 in State College at the Centre Region Council of Governments. Details for these and other volunteer opportunities are found on our Events calendar.
Ditto that for the next step of our 2017 photo contest Gallery Showcase - coming at the end of the month to Shawnee State Park. An opening reception/ribbon-cutting is on for March 29 at 4:30 and the gallery will be on display through May 1.
