Friends of Mont Alto

January 13, 2016

The Friends of Mont Alto have an historic gem on their hands – The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania purchased the park and furnace lands, which became Pennsylvania’s first state forest park in 1902. The next year the Commonwealth’s first professional forester began training foresters at the Mont Alto Forestry Academy, which became today’s Mont Alto Campus of the Pennsylvania State University.
