It was a great day to enjoy the outdoors and our beautiful state parks. I think the seven Cub Scouts and their parents had a great time. Thanks to Tosh Rung for sharing his tree knowledge.

Last Thursday the forestry club attended the Cumberland Woodland Owners Association meeting in Carlisle. The topic was timber rattlers in the Pennsylvania forests. Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) Wildlife Biologist, Aura Stauffer, and Forester, Mike Wright discussed research work to find out how many snakes are left and what they need to survive. Timber rattlers are surprisingly gentle and fragile. They need a good hibernacula for the winter and an undisturbed habitat. They are great at controlling the populations of rodents, which can carry diseases, in the forest. We also got to meet this young rattler, who made himself heard throughout the presentation. I sat next to Andy Reed, who was a little skeptical about rattlers at first, but seemed to warm up towards them a little, by the end of the evening!
