Join us this summer as we get to know a few of this world's True Heroes. President Lincoln (a.k.a. James Hayney) will be here to muse over the pivotal events of 1864 that changed his life and career.  He'll discuss the many challenges to his presidency during the Civil War's fourth year, and why the election of 1864 had great significance for history. President Lincoln will let you in on all the details from 1864 that have fallen through the cracks of time. No registration necessary.

Invasive plants harm other plants, insects, fish, birds, and eventually us. Many non-native plants destroy habitat for native plants, pollinators, birds and other animals. Penn State Extension Master Gardeners Carol Caplinger and Jason Harrison will help you learn to identify invasive plants using a wide array of real plant samples. They’ll also share methods of control and introduce you to alternative native plants that provide food and habitat for native wildlife. Cost for the program is $5.00. Please register by calling Penn State Extension, Cumberland County at 240-6500.
