Butterflies, in general, prefer nectar-rich flowers that are bright in color. Shavers Creek Environmental Center is in the final phase of an extensive renovation and expansion project, and will be reopening to the public on Sept. 1.

  • Water Tower

    The water tower on the north end of the University Park campus provides a shaded pavilion with seating and lighting. Penn State needed to replace the old tower to meet water quality regulations and welcomed designs from the Stuckeman School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture. The project was completed in the fall of 2017.
