Whistles in the Woods

Saturday, October 8, 2016 - 6:30pm

Prince Gallitzin State Park, 966 Marina Rd, Patton, PA 16668

Penn's Woods has always been an important resource.  Today, the state is the largest hardwood producing state, but would you believe that PA holds the distinction of having the longest period of steady output of timber in the country?  What was behind this little-known story, when lumber production approached 2 billion board feet every year!  Come, join us for a look back 100 years ago when PA received a "lumberman's shave."  View actual footage of virgin hemlock logging in 1926 in this fascinating trip back to the old-time logging industry of PA

This program will be held in the amphitheater.  In case of bad weather it will be moved to the park office.
