Naturalist Steve Prescott to talk about enjoying the outdoors

March 18, 2005

Naturalist Steve Prescott will address “A Walk in the Appalachian Mountains” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 23, in the Hiller Building auditorium. The appearance is part of the Penn State DuBois Cultural and Performing Arts Series. "I have devoted a significant part of my life to exploring, enjoying and learning about the natural world,” Prescott said. “I have hiked the Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail 2,600 miles from Mexico to Canada and many shorter footpaths. I have also spent many days in a kayak or canoe, having paddled to the Arctic Ocean, through the Grand Canyon and the lower canyons of the Rio Grande as well as more the 100 white-water rivers.” Prescott is a native of Lancaster County and for the past four years has operated a small organic farm along the Susquehanna River near the village of Bainbridge. Just one event remains in the spring schedule for the Cultural and Performing Arts Series. Mike Lee wraps up the season with a magic show on Monday, April 4, in the Multipurpose Building gymnasium. All of the Penn State DuBois Cultural and Performing Arts Series events are free to the public. For information, call (814) 375-4766.
