Mount Nittany Conservancy Holding Second Benefit

The second annual Mount Nittany Night will take place Friday, September 30 at the Mount Nittany Vineyard and Winery in Linden Hall from 6 to 8 p.m.

Those who attend will be “wining and dining” for a very noble cause.

All the proceeds from the event will be put towards helping the mountain, which is facing some very serious problems. According to the Mount Nittany Conservancy site, the Mike Lynch Overlook’s eroding soil needs to be stabilized due to an “increasing number of hikers” and “wet weather”. Pictures of the erosion show many trees with their roots exposed.

If you are not attending the event  but still feel strongly about preserving Mount Nittany, there are other ways to show your support. You can become a “Friend of the Mountain” or purchase a deed of Mount Nittany Conservancy land.

Details of both options can be found on the organization’s website.
