Mount Penn Preserve Online Survey
Our friends from the Mount Penn Preserve need YOUR input! Please take the Mount Penn Preserve online survey so your ideas for the future of the Preserve are heard. This includes festivals and events, outdoor recreational programs, and comments or suggestions for Antietam Lake Park.  The deadline to take this brief survey is April 10, 2017!
