This outdoor activity-themed bench for the Cold Stream Dam area is hopefully a fun way to remind us that adventure awaits just outside our doors. The MadLibs-inspired story on the reverse is meant to encourage a customized experience as we explore any of the dozens of activities available to us locally.  From camping to kayaking, biking to bird watching, how many elements from the back can you  find elsewhere on the bench? Next find out how many you can experience for yourself right here in Centre County!


“It has been a treat to be included in this community project. I love the idea of local artists getting to contribute something good to the communities where they live, work, and play!”
