Peter and the Starcatcher

Ephrata Performing Arts Center | Ephrata, false 17522

Peter and the Starcatcher is a magical story about imagination and growing up – and never growing up. Based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson and adapted for the stage by Rick Elice with music by Wayne Barker, this high-flying adventure tells the backstories of Peter Pan, Captain Hook, and Neverland. In addition to these beloved characters, a motley crew of new characters will find themselves shipwrecked in your heart. Molly Aster is a Starcatcher-in-training on a special mission with her father for the Queen. Molly hopes to impress her father with her serious determination. But how can she stay serious when she is confronted by goofy orphans, clumsy pirates, and sing-songy mermaids!

Doug Tallamy Public Lecture

Franklin & Marshall College - Lisa Bonchek Adams Auditorium | Lancaster, false 17603 event website

Insect populations have declined 45% globally since 1974. The most alarming part of this statistic is that we don’t seem to care, despite the fact that a world without insects is a world without humans! So how do we build attractive landscapes that support the pollinators, herbivores, detritivores, predators and parasitoids that run the ecosystems we depend on? Tallamy will remind us of the many essential roles insects play, and describe the simple changes we must make in our landscapes and our attitudes to keep insects on the ground, in the air and yes, on our plants.

Spelunk in Cold Cave

Wind / Cold Cave

Bucket, Cave
website | map it | Ridge Drive, Pequea, Pennsylvania,

Wind Cave is called Cold Cave because it's nearly freezing in there at all seasons.

It is one of the largest tectonic (created by moving rocks fracturing, not erosion) caves in the eastern United States. It is found in Pequea, Pennsylvania, about a 30 minute drive from Lancaster, in the Susquehanna valley.

To get there, follow 324 South from Lancaster. You will run into a T where the road ends when it hits the river. Take a left, onto Ridge Drive, before long on your right there will be a gated-off road entrance and several gravel parking spaces between the road and a guard-rail. Park here and follow the gated road about a hundred yards until you see a small path leading off to the left. Take this path, and keep going. It seems to wind on endlessly, but just keep going. You will come to a piling of rocks, and in this piling is a large entrance, with a sign posted by the York Grotto about taking care of the cave.
