Pancake Breakfast. Yum!

From Penn State Mont Alto Forestry Club

On Saturday February 27, forestry club members Tim Benedict, Sam Bond, Mike Trisket, Tyler Wakefield, and Seth Morris went to a pancake breakfast in Mount Hope. The event was to support the Strawberry Hill Nature Preserve. The members in attendance had a great time. After the breakfast we went to the Nature Preserve and hiked some of the nature trails.

With the huge amounts of snow that have fallen in the last two weeks the students were eager to try out the snow tubing at White Tail again. This year's course has a higher raised ending to prevent crashes into the fence, but the course is still fast. Check out the videos.

Burning the Woodpile

From time to time the Woodsmen's Team needs to dispose of the accumulated scraps from practice. Also, students in arboriculture have pruned a lot of branches around campus. But it's important to burn the pile safely. It just so happens that this weekend the area is being hit by a huge snowstorm. No chance of the fire getting away! The team members will monitor it overnight, though.
