Groundbreaking ceremony held for new nature park

Local News

A new nature park will be undergoing construction in the next few weeks!

The Blair County Conservation District broke ground for their new NatureWorks Park.

Plans include gardening beds, a pollinator garden and space for demonstration areas and workshops.

Organizers say it will be a great place for environmental education for kids.

“When you teach a kid then you’ve taught the adults,” explained Donna Fisher. “Also they go home and then they teach their parents so we’re extremely excited about the opportunity to expand education here for all generations, but specifically children.”

NatureWorks park is slated to open this August.
