Students volunteer to help maintain Nolde Forest

Penn State Berks students will volunteer to help preserve Nolde Forest on April 18 from 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. as part of Nolde Forest's regularly scheduled volunteer days. Specific clean-up tasks will be determined that day by Nolde Forest Staff. Previous clean-up efforts have included clearing drainage channels, raking leaves, and clearing invasive vines.

"Our county and state parks are a treasure for Pennsylvanians," comments Jeff Fazio, Student Activities Coordinator. "Assisting to keep them beautiful and usable is always a rewarding experience. Have you ever walked a trail and wondered where the trail came from or how it is maintained? Chances are, it was a team of volunteers putting in the time to make it possible.
 
Penn State Berks students volunteer with Nolde Forest once per semester and once over the summer as part of the community service pre-orientation program. For more information, contact Jeff Fazio at 610-396-6367 or jmf31@psu.edu.
