Volunteers Galore

Saturday October 13 over 30 student volunteers arrived at the trailhead to help with trail maintenance on Mt Nittany. Two student groups, Penn State Alpha Phi Omega – Alpha Beta Chapter and Circle K at Penn State University Park, who brought along fellow Circle K members from Shippensburg University as well, did several maintenance tasks on both the White and Blue trails on the Oak Hall side of the Mountain.

On the White trail from Station 6 moving up slope for about .25 mile toward Station 10, 21 water bars were put in place. In addition, on the Blue trail starting at Station 6 and working toward Station 7, another group cleared back the small oaks and scrub that make this portion of the trail a bit tight to traverse over the summer (map).

It was a great day to work… cool and sunny. We’d like to thank all the volunteers for an outstanding job and their support of Mt. Nittany.
