The Mount Nittany Conservancy is deeply concerned about the current state of the iconic Mike Lynch Overlook on Mt Nittany. Due to increasing number of hikers, along with our wet weather this year, the soil at the Overlook is becoming increasingly eroded.

You can help support our efforts to stabilize the Overlook by becoming a Friend of the Mountain. You can also attend our second annual Mount Nittany Night to be held Friday, September 30, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Evidence of the erosion can be seen in the below photos. While the Conservancy and volunteer groups have worked to place water bars (logs that cut across the overlook to re-direct water), more actions are needed. In order to make this happen, we do need your support!
