Our Third Annual Mount Nittany Night

The Friend of the Mountain award, which honors a person or group based on contributions of talent, time, and resources on behalf of the Mountain, was awarded posthumously to Emeritus Board member Ken Reeves. Ken was an integral part of the founding of the Mount Nittany Conservancy in 1981 and served as our third President. Ken’s love for the Mountain, his vision for its preservation and conservation, and his knowledge about all that surrounds it, has been an inspiration for all of us who have the honor of serving the Mountain.
