[Photo Story] Penn State EcoReps Hosts ‘Critters By The Creamery’ Event

On Friday afternoon, snakes, turtles, bats, and a skunk made a trip over to the Berkey Creamery. Penn State EcoReps hosted its annual “Critters by the Creamery” event to introduce people to animals of all shapes and sizes to celebrate Earth Week.

Our photographers were on the scene to capture the festivities.

Folks were loving Dottie the spotted turtle and Sticky the Eastern rat snake.

Centre Wildlife Care brought its big, fluffy barred owl, Bobbles, to the event. Did you know owls are that massive?

If you’re interested in getting involved, the volunteer-run nonprofit wildlife rehabilitation center aims to restore orphaned or injured animals to their natural habitat. Falcons, skunks, bats, and hedgehogs are some of the animals it has rescued.

EcoReps set up a dog toy station so folks could bring home a gift to their furry friends.

Trash to treasure! A sustainable painting station was set up, and students enjoyed making pretty arts and crafts bottle caps.

It was all smiles for the beautiful weather, cute creatures, and friend bonding.

Just steps away, Penn Staters enjoyed ice cream at the Berkey Creamery with a view.

This year’s Critters by the Creamery was a smashing success, to say the least.
