Day one of the Fall Harvest Festival was a blast! A non-scary trail with loads of fun characters staffed by Penn State students, costumes, popcorn, face paint, pumpkin bowling, rock climbing, live music, storytelling, and so much more! Join us for day 2. www.ShaversCreek.org/FallHarvestFest

Water striders, water bugs, magic bugs, pond skaters, skaters, skimmers, water scooters, water skaters, water skeeters, water skimmers, water skippers, water spiders — whatever you call them, they’re pretty cool creatures! Through highly adapted legs and evenly distributed weight, they’re able to use the surface tension of water to their great advantage.
