This weekend, Stackhouse Park will host three exciting events for our community:

- Art Walk in the Park (click here for all the details!)
- Johnstown StoryWalk @ Stackhouse Park (see the flyer below for more information!)
Thank you to all the volunteers who have been working so hard to make these events possible.
If you attend one or more events, please remember to leave our park better than you found it.
We hope you have a fun and memorable weekend in our park!
We're proud to partner with Victim Services, Inc. to present Art in the Park again this summer. Please join us!
Do you know it takes over 2 months for dog waste to decompose naturally? During that time, it introduces bacteria and disease into the soil and water. Boy Scout Zachary Davis-Reese, representing Troop 622 in Roxbury, is planning to install four pet waste stations (as shown in the picture below) in Stackhouse Park as part of his Eagle Scout project.
Each station will cost approximately $200 to install. Zachary is asking for donations to help him purchase all the necessary materials and supplies. If you're interested in making a donation to help fund Zachary's project, please remit a check to Stackhouse Park, Inc. (with the memo “Waste Stations” noted on the check) and mail your contribution to Stackhouse Park, 998 Luzerne Street, Johnstown, PA 15905.
Zachary hopes to have his project completed this summer.

Stackhouse Park, Inc.'s Board of Directors would like to gauge the public's interest in a half-day youth orientation program that would introduce young people to learning about turkeys, including hunting wild turkeys. The program would be led by Stackhouse Park board member Tom Hindman, who has hosted turkey clinics in the park for many years and is the author of The Perfect Pursuit.
At present, there are no plans for setting a minimum age for the orientation. Children and youth who are interested in participating must be accompanied by an adult.
Organizers are interested in hosting the orientation this summer; specifically, on a mid-July afternoon.
In addition to educating youth, the organizers intend to educate the parents/guardians, helping them prepare to become mentors to first-time hunters.
Questions, concerns, and general feedback about this potential program can be shared by filling out the form below. We welcome any questions, comments, or ideas you may have.
Thank you for your time!
"This time around, Stackhouse Park Board Chairman Mike Zibura guides me through the beautiful nature area nestled between Westmont Borough, Lower Yoder Township, Brownstown and several other municipalities in Cambria County, Pennsylvania. We cover everything from preservation of the park, the history of how it came to be and the hundreds of volunteer hours needed to keep it up and running." -Joshua Byers, Tribune-Democrat
