January 17, 2018

State Parks Region 2 Office Conference Room
195 Park Road, Prospect PA 16052-2013

Discover how local land use transitioned from the 1940s to the opening of Moraine State Park in 1970. The land reclamation is an outstanding example of an environmental engineering achievement. Polly Shaw, author of the book “Images of Modern America Moraine State Park”, will share images and insights of life in the Muddy Creek Basin as the oil and coal industries closed, and construction was undertaken for the new park.
