DiscoverE Day Camps At Jennings!

Lake Arthur Regatta

Mark your calendars for the Moraine State Park Regatta on August 5-7 and plan for some summertime fun! A full weekend of free family fun at the shores of beautiful Lake Arthur will have something to offer everyone. 

Schoolhouse Restoration

Turns out there is more to restore in the Slippery Rock Creek Watershed than just land and streams impacted by abandoned mine drainage! 

This particular location was impacted by time and the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics (the law of increasing entropy — as time goes by, everything decays, breaks down, etc.) 

We’re talking about the Foltz Schoolhouse, located in Slippery Rock and under the care of Jennings Environmental Education Center.
