2018 Fall Foliage Tour

The leaves were slow to turn this year, and we've had a lot of rainy and dreary days as well. But the wait was worth it. Here are some views of nearby trees. 

Songbird Sanctuary: Summer 2018
Ferguson Township is developing this newest park — accessible from Owens Drive — as a passive recreation area, meaning it will feature mostly hiking and biking trails, native landscaping, and natural features. The nine-acre tract is located adjacent to the Waffle Shop on Blue Course Drive. These are the newest shots of the park as it looks this summer.

Pasto Agricultural Museum
Located on the Penn State Ag Progress Days site in Rock Springs, the Pasto Agricultural Museum features approximately 1,300 rare and unusual farm and household items dating from 4,000 BC to the 1940s or more than 6,000 years. Visitors can learn about early farm life as our nation grew while gaining hands-on experience with the history of agriculture and household equipment by turning the cranks and moving levers. The Pasto Agricultural Museum is open from 10 am to 2 pm Tuesdays and Thursdays from mid-March through mid-December. 

EVENTS

2018 United Way Day of Caring

Staff representing Ferguson Township's Departments of Administration, Finance, Planning & Zoning, Police, and Public Works proudly participated in the 2018 United Way Day of Caring on Thursday, October 4. 

The day began with breakfast at the Bryce Jordan Center, served by the Penn State Men's Basketball Team. From there, our team joined volunteers and residents working at three Strawberry Fields lodges, where we weeded flower beds, pruned shrubs and trees, raked, and mulched. Our Public Works workers brought mulch and collected the brush we cut.

Meanwhile, at the third site, a Public Works crew  installed a concrete sidewalk and 50 feet of hand rail. The following day they seeded and laid topsoil. 

Strawberry Fields provides offers a continuum of services to enhance the lives of individuals and families with developmental delays, intellectual disabilities, and mental illness.

Ferguson Township Road Worker Gideon Ammerman brought our Petersen Rear Steer grappler. Our road workers use the grappler to pick up brush, debris, and downed tree limbs. Ammerman helped kids climb into the cab and showed them how to honk its blaring horn.

Ferguson Township Police Officer Mike Lamb turned the flashing lights on his patrol car, allowed kids (of all ages) sit in the driver's seat, let them hold the police shield and a police vest to show them how heavy it is.

Snetsinger Butterfly Garden Clean-up: April 21, 2018
On Watershed Clean-up Day, master gardeners and community stewards gathered at the Snetsinger Butterfly Garden demonstration gardens to begin this year's spring clean-up effort. Master Gardener Pam Ford said this spring's wintry weather had delayed their clean-up efforts. This time three months from now, the gardens will be in full bloom.
