Treasured elms

Walking sticks, furniture and other wooden pieces, all made from the Penn State elms, are on display at the 'Treasured Elms' tent located near Schwab Auditorium.  The Penn State elms that surrounded Old Main needed to be brought down due to disease and a partnership between the Alumni Association and Penn State's Office of Physical Plant has preserved their memory with a collection of unique wooden pieces on sale at the Arts Festival. Proceeds help to replant trees around the University Park campus.
