Viewing Stations Erected

Off the Mountain, three new Viewing Stations have been installed at locations around the valley, in addition to the existing station at the Bryce Jordan Center, which was recently remodeled. Stations at Mt. Nittany Middle School, the Penn State Arboretum, and inside Lubrano Park now all provide outstanding views of the Mountain. Our thanks go out to the numerous local governing agencies that have worked diligently to make these Stations a reality.

Additional viewing stations are in the works for the Oak Hall Regional Park and Tudek Park. The stations include information on the history and conservation of the Mountain and a photo from that location at the time the station was created.

Each Viewing Station includes:

  • brief history of the Lion’s Paw Alumni Association (the group who first worked to protect the Mountain from lumbering and other development threats) and the formation of the MNC
  • how Mt. Nittany is used for recreation purposes
  • the etymology behind the word Nittany
  • pictures and a trail map of Mt. Nittany from the current location of the viewer
