In his role as a Field Investigator, he interviews witnesses, as well as analyzes evidence and data as part of MUFON’s ongoing mission “The Scientific Study of UFOs for the Benefit of Humanity”.

Fredricksen Library has teamed up with Penn State Master Gardeners to bring you a series of workshops that will show you how to garden with nature.  Penn State Master Gardeners are volunteers trained by Penn State Extension to provide research-based home gardening information to the public. Join Master gardener, Liz Letcavage, and learn to transform two tricky spaces—sidewalk strips and slopes—by replacing lawn grass with hardy perennials, shrubs and small trees to add curb appeal, reduce storm water run-off, and boost native beneficial insect populations. Workshops are $5.00 each. Please register by calling 1-877-345-0691. Walk-ins are accepted if space is available.

In partnership with the Master Gardeners, this year's series will meet the third Tuesday of every month through October.
