The summer solstice is approaching as the longest day of the year nears. Our annual summer picnic has many eats and treats for all tastes and appetites! Join us as we picnic together and celebrate another year of exploring and protecting nature in Central PA! After eating, we will have a nature walk from 7 to 8:15 PM. JVAS will provide roasted chicken for everyone. We hope everyone else will bring a covered dish to share.

We will end the evening with a visit to the bat church around 8:30 PM to see Pennsylvania’s only flying mammals – bats! The bats exiting the church for their nightly feeding forays beat the odds of White-Nose Syndrome and their survival needs to be celebrated. Plan to stay until around 9:15 PM to see the bats.

Be sure to let Catie Farr or Laura Jackson know what you plan to bring.
