EcoReps To Host ‘Critters By The Creamery’ Event To Celebrate Earth Day On April 22

Penn State’s EcoReps will host a “Critters by the Creamery” event on Friday, April 22, to celebrate Earth Day and increase awareness for wildlife conservation.

The event will take place on the Berkey Creamery lawn from noon to 4 p.m. in partnership with Centre Wildlife Care, a local non-profit focused on wildlife rehabilitation and wildlife education, and Penn State’s Eco Action.

At the Creamery, EcoReps will host activities including sustainable Plinko, a recycling relay, face painting, arts and crafts, can tosses, and more. In addition to these activities, six friendly critters will be in attendance for students and the community to meet and learn more about.

Centre Wildlife Care will bring Andromeda the Red-Tailed Hawk, Harvey the Eastern Box Turtle, Petunia the Striped Skunk, Bobbles the Barred Owl, Onyx the Black Rat Snake, and Betsy the Bat for a meet and greet at the event. The festivities should give students a chance to learn a bit more about wildlife while enjoying some Creamery ice cream.
