LOCK HAVEN, Pa. - If “Cabin Fever” has you down, relief is only a few mouse-clicks away. The February issue of The Hemlock, Lock Haven University’s journal on outdoor recreation, the environment, and central Pennsylvania’s heritage and culture, is now available on the web. Lock Haven University is a member of the Pennsylvania State
System of Higher Education (PASSHE), the largest provider of higher education in
the commonwealth. Its 14 universities offer more than 250 degree and certificate
programs in more than 120 areas of study. Nearly 405,000 system alumni live and
work in Pennsylvania.
To motivate readers to get out and about, this month’s Hemlock features articles on “A Woolrich Experience,” “Presque Isle” and the “Hike of the Month: The Mid-State Trail in Winter.” The issue also features articles on two environmental issues. “Saving Hemlocks” explains how the hemlock woolly adelgid (a sap-sucking insect) is destroying native hemlocks, with potentially disastrous consequences for Pennsylvania’s economy, wildlife, and hunting and fishing. “The U.S. Role in the Climate Change Summit” focuses on the issue of climate change.
These articles and others are available online at http://www.lhup.edu/hemlock/hemlock3.4.htm.
The Hemlock is a publication of LHU’s Environmental Focus Group, whose goal is to help the LHU community develop a deeper sense of place. The articles are contributed by LHU faculty, staff, students and administrators, as well as by members of the central Pennsylvania community.
