Wings in the Park at Snetsinger Butterfly Garden, Tom Tudek Park

Wings in the Park at Tom Tudek Memorial Park is sponsored annually in July by Penn State Extension Master Gardeners and partner organizations. Accentuating the positives about pollinators — bees, birds and butterflies—the event draws its inspiration from its co-founder, the late Dr. Robert Snetsinger, aka “Butterfly Bob.” Dr. Snetsinger and the Penn State Master Gardeners developed the butterfly garden at Tudek Park 10 years ago in cooperation with partners of the park. Children and their families who attend Wings in the Park learn how they can save pollinators by providing habitats for them in their own gardens.

Penn State’s Ag Progress Days—Pennsylvania’s largest outdoor agricultural expo—is the show for everyone who cares about Pennsylvania agriculture: the farmers, the consumers and taxpayers who benefit, and the children whose future depends on it.

The next Ag Progress Days will take place August 14 - 16, 2018 at the Russell E. Larson Agricultural Research Center in Rock Springs. Visit its website for details.

When you go, tour the Pasto Agricultural Museum.
