Historical Society plans dedication at Heritage Park for new signage

By Staff | Oct 6, 2015

One of the new Interpretive panels that will be dedicated this Sunday at Muncy Heritage Park and Nature Trail.

MUNCY – The Muncy Historical Society will host both a dedication ceremony and a

“Wagging Tails and War Tales” presentation at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 11, at the society’s Heritage Park and Nature Trail location, 601 Pepper Street, Muncy.

The dedication portion of the event will recognize the Lumber Heritage

Region, which selected the Muncy Historical Society’s Heritage Park

and Nature Trail as a recipient of a mini-grant for the design and

installation of 7 additional interpretive panels at the park. This

project was financed in part by a grant from the Community

Conservation Partnerships Program (C2P2), Environmental Stewardship

Fund, under the administration of the Pennsylvania Department of

Conservation and Natural Resources Bureau of Recreation and

Conservation, along with matching dollars from friends of the

Historical Society. Immediately after, members and friends of the

Central Susquehanna Woodland Owners Association will honor Jack

Murray’s legacy as a forest steward and explorer with the dedication

of a bench placed in his memory.

At the education pavilion, Bill Poulton will present the “Wagging

Tales” portion, the last in the society’s series of its World War II

2015 learning focus. This will be an opportunity to learn how American

family dogs contributed in the defense effort during World War II.

This is a free, all-outside event so dress appropriately. Arrive early

to grab a complimentary hot dog and beverage and to view

the interpretive signage, while enjoying the natural beauty of the

park. In case of inclement weather, the dedication portion will be

held, but the “Wagging Tales” presentation will be rescheduled. Contact
