2012 Alum, Nate Shank, returns from Appalachian Trail Hike

Nate Shank is shown with one of his pairs of worn out hiking shoes from his recent Appalachian Trail hike. Soon after graduating last May, Nate started from Mount Katahdin on a southward hike of the trail. He described his trip while showing slides in the GS Auditorium last Tuesday (3/26). Not counting a few breaks, Nate finished the trip in four months, a great time. We really enjoyed his tales of the trail!

Shriner's Knob Tree Tube Removal

The Penn State Mont Alto Forestry Club helped removed tree tubes at a planting site (Shriner's Knob) in the Michaux State Forest. At this site the tubes were more dispersed than the site we visited last year. The views form the top of this hill were fantastic. It would be great to come back on a more sunny day!
