UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State and ClearWater Conservancy are seeking input from the campus and local community as part of the University’s effort to conserve land it owns, roughly between Whitehall Road and Rothrock State Forest at Musser Gap, in Ferguson Township near the University Park campus.
The online survey released today (Jan. 7), is available at https://goo.gl/forms/EVj8RVnXT4bhAAQf1. The survey asks respondents about concerns, recreational opportunities and possible amenities. The survey will close on Jan. 17.
“We’re very happy to be working with ClearWater to engage our local and campus community as we consider the passive use options for Musser Gap while protecting the overall environment, including the water supply,” said David Gray, senior vice president for finance and business at Penn State.
Deb Nardone, executive director at ClearWater Conservancy, said, “This survey is the first step in shaping the priorities for the 355 acres of the Musser Gap to Valleylands, or MG2V, site. It’s very important for the community to engage in this process to help shape the future of the MG2V site for generations to come.”
Nardone said information collected from the survey will help to drive the conversation at the first community forum, set for 6 to 8 p.m. on Jan. 31 at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Centre County at 780 Waupelani Dr. in State College.
