About the Cover Wondering why you should visit here? While theme parks, mountains, beaches and cities are awesome, it’s the unique moments and simple pleasures that you remember... the little things that make a getaway great.

I

t’s like stopping to smell the roses, but in vacation mode. Taking a selfie with an alpaca… seeing your child’s eyes light up as you approach carnival rides… holding your sweetheart’s hand while taking a sunset walk by the lake… that first sip of microbrewed beer.

There’s so much to do here, from uncovering history to dining on Asian food. We’ve got quirky attractions galore… like Stella, a goose that likes to walk brides down the aisle, and a giant green and purple ice cream cone.

It’s the Little Towns that make a Getaway Great! When you’re mostly rural, even your county seat is a small town. Ours is Butler, and this small town is unexpectedly significant. Do you know Amelia Earhart’s Little Red Bus? Well, she received her instrument training here and had long-range fuel tanks installed before her journey across the Atlantic. Butler has a rich history shaped by immigrants and industries. The city was named for General Richard Butler, a Revolutionary War military leader. A mix of history, arts and community events make our county seat charming.

Butler

Since its founding in 1800, there have been two major immigration waves. Early settlers were German, Scots-Irish and English seeking peace, religious freedom and land. In 1887, Butler emerged in the global flat glass industry bringing in workers from Belgium, France, Germany and England. The next industry to boom in Butler was the manufacturing of the first ever, all-steel railcars by the Standard Steel Car Company, founded by John Hansen and “Diamond” Jim Brady. Many eastern Europeans came to work in Butler during this second wave to build a brighter future for their families. Butler’s community grew up around Standard Steel Car (SSC), which became one of the largest builders of steel cars in the U.S. The imprint it had was seen in the many domed churches of Lyndora and the company housing that lined Hansen Avenue. In 1930, SSC merged with Pullman Co. to create the great Pullman-Standard that employed thousands of Butler residents until its closing in 1982. The community remains enriched by the culture and heritage of the immigrants once employed by these industries. Butler also has an interesting automotive history and is known ‘round the world as the

birthplace of the Jeep. Six automobiles got their start in Butler: the Huselton, Standard, Russell Sherman, American Austin, American Bantam and the Bantam BRC, or Jeep. In 1940, the U.S. Army asked 135 tractor and auto manufacturers to design a four-wheel drive, 40-horsepower, 1,200-pound reconnaissance car that could haul soldiers as well as heavy artillery. The challenge? The designer was expected to have a working prototype available for a test run within 49 days. Only two companies responded to the request, The American Bantam Car Company and Willys-Overland Motors of Toledo, Ohio. Bantam won the contract, and that’s where the Jeep began. Today, downtown Butler is undergoing a renaissance with a new hotel, parking garage, microbreweries and more. Come shop, dine, explore a museum or gallery, and attend a show to see for yourself why Butler is one of the very best small towns!


A Day in Downtown Butler Wake up, sleepyhead! You’ll surely sleep well in downtown Butler’s brand new hotel, opening mid-2017.

Harmony Begin your adventure with a scenic walk. In July 2016, a group of Walldogs (international mural painters) created ten new works of art around downtown. Each beautifully highlights a different piece of our past, from the steel, oil and automotive industries to famous faces and places. Late May through early August, baseball fans can enjoy a Butler BlueSox game in historic Kelly Automotive Park (formerly Pullman Park) where greats such as Joe DiMaggio, Lou Gehrig and Whitey Ford once played! After a 2008 revitalization, the ballpark is quite impressive. Tucked on a residential street, The Maridon Museum is truly big-city caliber. Discover ancient Asian art, including tiny and often hilarious sculptures called netsukes. These little figurines were used for tying a kimono sash. The one seen to the left is the Badger Priest. Those are some highlights, but central Butler County has golfing, museums, shopping, dining, beer, farming fun and tons of festivals. To make your trip even more memorable, check out pages 10 and 11 to plan your trip during an event.

You’ll discover a lot of incredible and sometimes quirky history in Harmony. This quaint village of old brick and log buildings is one of western Pennsylvania’s most historically important places and a National Historic Landmark District. The Harmony Museum, which interprets 250 years of rich history, has presentations that include George Washington’s 1753 mission, Harmonists, Mennonites, and the Ball Collection of outstanding sporting rifles by 19th century Harmony gunsmith Charles Flowers with a three-building tour. Harmony was founded in 1804 by the Harmony Society of German Lutheran Separatists who were seeking religious freedom. The Harmonists, who believed Christ’s return was imminent, adopted celibacy to remain spiritually pure, but also ensured the group’s eventual demise. “Father” George Rapp, founder of the commune, frequently looked down on his people from Rapp’s Seat. It can still be accessed today from Evergreen Mill Road and offers outstanding views, especially during autumn. After two hundred years, the society lives on through the historic architecture, landmarks, cemeteries and events that celebrate its heritage. Many buildings have been renovated or restored. Nine sites are operated by the Harmony Museum. Another belief of the Harmonists can be seen in their cemetery located just outside town—the Harmonists didn’t mark the graves of the more than 100 society members buried there, with one exception made for the grave of Rapp’s son. Try your luck opening the cemetery’s one-ton stone gate that revolves evenly on its center. You’ll find it’s easier than it sounds! Today, you can stroll through the museum’s WeihnachtsMarkt (German Christmas Market) and ring in the New Year during Silvester, on German time (6 p.m.) in remembrance of the founders’ heritage. An afternoon can be spent perusing art, antiques and other shops. Other highlights include great coffee, bakeries, and dining at the historic inn, which is said to be haunted. You’ll quickly discover that spending time in Harmony is simply harmonious. Silvester New Year’s Eve Celebration

Saxonburg

Saxonburg, named for the German state of Saxony, began as a vision for a wholesome town offering a new life for German settlers. With distinctive architecture modeled after a German hamlet, it still retains much of its original character. In fact, Main Street was named to the National Register of Historic Places, and 32 of the town’s buildings are more than 100 years old! It was also designed so that the highest point of the town was the Saxonburg Memorial Presbyterian Church, which still stands as such today. John Roebling, one of the town’s founders, left his mark in not only Saxonburg, but New York City as well. He was the inventor of the wire cable used on the Brooklyn Bridge and also the designer of it, so while you meander through Roebling Park, take notice of the sizeable reminder of his impact on the town: a replica Brooklyn Bridge. Today, Main Street is lined with shops and businesses that share the same passion for preserving the town’s history. You don’t have to go far to sip a cup of coffee, enjoy a delicious meal, purchase fresh baked goods, or shop for unique items in historic buildings.

Cranberry Township

If bright lights, shops and restaurants sound exciting, then Cranberry Township is the place for you. Butler County’s most bustling town, Cranberry, is our gateway to Pittsburgh, located just 20 minutes north of the city via I-79. It is also a stop along the Pennsylvania Turnpike, providing easy access from Ohio and eastern PA. Although the township is more than 200 years old, it has grown immensely—more than double—since the 90s. Nearly 30,000 people call Cranberry home, and for good reason, as the quality of life is excellent. From community parks, quality programming, a top-notch golf course and endless things to do, Cranberry Township is a real win for residents and visitors alike. Cranberry has also been recognized as a great place to raise a family. The township even has a diversity network, encouraging and welcoming residents of all backgrounds.

Above: The Streets of Cranberry is just one of the endless places to shop and dine in Cranberry Township. Below: Though bustling, Cranberry offers many outlets for art and recreation like these chainsaw-carved sculptures in Graham Park.

In 2016, The Cranberry Miracle League Field was resurfaced. It is designed and engineered to give special needs children and adults the opportunity to play baseball. A new playground was also added, allowing kids of all ages and abilities to enjoy a fun day at the park. This year, plans are in place for a new recreational area at Graham Park which will include a community garden and sports courts for pickleball, tennis, basketball, bocce, shuffleboard, horseshoes and cornhole. See for yourself why Cranberry Township was included on Expedia’s list of 101 Most Comfortable Cities. Choose from more than a dozen hotels and spend the night close to Pittsburgh, without having to pay for parking!

Zelienople

Called “a modern place with old-fashioned grace,” Zelienople brings on the charm with its friendly small-town atmosphere. If you take a walk to admire the gorgeous homes, you’ll surely encounter at least one other person to offer a warm “hello.” A stroll down Main Street offers the opportunity for shopping, dining and quirky adventures. 18 2017 Official Visitors Guide / www.VisitButlerCounty.com / 866-856-8444

founder’s daughter, Zelie, and “nople” is the Greek word for town. Learn more about this history at the historical society’s Buhl and Passavant House museums. You can even see framed artwork made of real human hair! On Friday nights, The Strand Theater shows movies for only $5; some classics, some current flicks. This restored theater dates back to 1914 and was, at one point, used for

vaudeville! In addition to movies, you can catch top-notch live entertainment, including Broadway performers and more. You can find additional entertainment yearround with frequent holiday parades and special programming by the Community Park Association. This group currently has an initiative for a new pool and the plans look spectacular! Between this and other enhancements, the town is becoming even lovelier with age.

Evans City

When the land that became Evans City was settled in the 1800s, the residents would probably have never guessed that it would later gain notoriety from zombies—nor did they even know what zombies were! With hit shows like “The Walking Dead,” we sure do today. What zombie fans today may not know is that the craze started in Evans

City, the filming location for the 1968 cult classic Night of the Living Dead. Director George Romero returned to the town again in 1973 to film The Crazies, a film in which the town was blown up! Today Evans City proudly honors its past with wooden zombie silhouettes, and its nickname, “City of Black Gold,” referring to a 1915 oil boom. A large historical marker and plaques downtown, as well as a Living Dead museum and shop link Evans City to its film history. This tiny town is a main throughway between Butler and the western part of the county as its Main Street is Route 68. Despite its size, the town has several festivals, specialty shops, restaurants, a community park and a museum. It’s definitely worth a stop and not just a drive-through.

Mars

Yes, there really is life on Mars, and residents take full advantage of the fun opportunities their town’s name creates. A flying saucer is parked in the town square, offering an unusual photo opportunity for visitors. Alien sightings occur daily in storefront windows. Letters with a Mars, PA postmark are frequently mailed around the

A Tour of Slippery Rock Start your day about eight miles southeast of town. Playthings, Etc. claims to be “The World’s Coolest Toy Store,” and there’s plenty of evidence to support that. A, The stainless steel building looks like a stealth bomber. B, You are encouraged to play. C, The employees play too, which means you get to see some cool demos and experience

NASA will return this year for the second event since it takes Mars almost twice as long as Earth to orbit the sun. The town of Mars dates back to 1792 when the first settler arrived in the area. Mars

lighthearted customer service. And D, They carry a lot of toys… nostalgic, creative, scientific… something for everyone. Really. Weekends May through October, you can stop and tour The Old Stone House, which you’ll pass on your way to Slippery Rock. This 1822 [former] inn and stagecoach stop provides an interesting dose of history. As the rules state, “4 pence a night for bed, 6 pence with potluck, and no more than five to sleep in one bed.” Things were certainly different back in its heyday. Across the highway lies Pennsylvania’s only protected prairie at Jennings Environmental Education

flourished in its early years because it was located on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad and on the Butler Short Line, the electric trolley route that linked Pittsburgh and Butler. Today, the historical society operates a museum, including a restored caboose and a scaleddown version of the Mars Shortline Railroad which you can ride for a donation.

Center with five miles of trail loops. In town, Slippery Rock University almost always has something going on from arts to sports, and it’s a pleasant place just to take a leisurely walk. The campus also has a hilly and lightly-wooded disc golf course which was part of the 2015 Professional Disc Golf Association World Championships. Speaking of walking, “A Walk Around the Rock” features sixteen numbered plaques along South Main Street. Keep an eye out to learn some nifty history of this quaint town. A brochure is available at srheritage.org. Right along Main Street, North Country Brewing Company is a must for dinner. Aside from creative brews and tasty eats, “the Brewery,” as locals like to call it, has an atmosphere like no other. The owner was a former geologist

and commissioned endless wood carvings. The Brewery also has a canning facility off of Route 108 which offers frequent tours and a “Yappy Hour” for dogs. A bit further on Route 108 you’ll find The Birdwatchers store. Chances are you’ve never been to a shop like this! They offer a surprising array of gifts and birding supplies, plus there is a large back window for birdwatching. Choose a designated driver and head to the hills for a nightcap. DR Distillery offers free tours and samples of their white gold corn whiskey and sweet trade rum handcrafted in the woods of western Pennsylvania. Fruity flavors are now available as well! After all of that, you should sleep well. The Fairfield Inn & Suites has a cozy bed, swimming pool and free breakfast with your name on it!


Slippery Rock

Those who live in Slippery Rock, permanently or as students, often get asked the question, “Is there anything to do here”? Also, “Is that a real place”? Yes and yes. If you think Slippery Rock is an odd name for a town, “Wechachochapohka,” is the Seneca word for the town. The names may be strange, but this quaint college town is big on charm. Slippery Rock is vibrant with college students—many seeking to become teachers, physical therapists and recreation professionals. With its convenient location along the Slippery Rock Creek and proximity to Moraine State Park, Jennings Environmental

Portersville

Education Center and the North Country Trail, Slippery Rock is a magnet for outdoor enthusiasts. Hiking, kayaking and geocaching are some popular activities. During the school year, SRU offers a topnotch performing arts series, as well as student performances, art galleries and sporting events. Taking a stroll down Main Street can also be quite delightful, with murals, sculptures, shaded seating, and one-of-a-kind small businesses. A volunteer organization called Slippery Rock in Bloom enhances the community, not only through beautification, but heritage preservation as well. In recent years, the town has really blossomed (pun intended)!

Another treasure near Slippery Rock is Moraine State Park in Portersville. See pages 24-29 for a map and all the outdoor information you could ask for. Portersville is a teeny town with some hidden gems like specialty shops and home cooking. Have pizza delivered to Moraine by Pizza Joe’s, or visit The Snowman, just five minutes from the park. This giant guy is a roadside attraction with delicious frozen treats, including 24 flavors of shave ice. Three times a year, the Portersville Steam Show offers unique delights such as homemade ice cream, a vintage village, a flea market and lots of steam-powered vehicles.

Retro Itinerary Traveling Back Through Time What comes to mind when you hear the following: bowling and keeping your own score, sitting and ordering a drink at the soda fountain, going to the local car cruise or watching a movie at the drive-in? If you said the 1950s or 60s, then you’re right! Plan a fun-packed day or weekend in Butler County around this exciting theme. Your adventure starts in Cranberry Township for brunch at Double Wide Grill. This is a unique restaurant located in a building that resembles a 1950s gas station. Make your way to Mars Lanes and bowl a few games on real wood! From the moment you step inside the door, you will feel like you’ve been transported back in time. In fact, it was used as a filming

{

site for the movie Kingpin. This beautiful 10-lane alley offers the same experience it did 50 years ago. But, don’t worry, scorekeeping help is available if needed. After working up an appetite, head over to Cheeburger Cheeburger in Cranberry. This retro-inspired dining experience starts with music of the 50s and 60s, neon lights and vintage-style signs and posters. One of the best seats can be found at the soda fountain. Another choice is Quaker Steak & Lube which gives old muscle cars a permanent home as hanging decor. Butler County has many car cruises throughout the year. From the Rodfather’s CruiseA-Palooza, the Penn Township Volunteer Fire Department

Enjoy driving scenic back roads? The Butler County Barn Trail is a free drive-it-yourself tour through winding farmland, telling history of the county’s most interesting barns. Details at www.VisitButlerCounty.com/BarnTrail

}

Mega Cruise and Fly-In, the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival Jeep Invasion, the Saxonburg Festival of the Arts and Evans City Oktoberfest, you won’t have to search long for a wonderful display of antique cars. Our online events calendar is a must-view resource for your planning. The Living Dead Museum on Main Street, Evans City includes props and memorabilia with an interactive presentation stemming from the 1968 Night of the Living Dead, filmed in the town. What would an old-school day be without antiques? Also on Main Street is Antiques Preferred of Evans City, and on Route 8 South in Valencia, you’ll find Wagon Wheel Antiques.

In Butler County, we’ve even got vintage candy! Baldinger’s Market on Route 19 outside Zelienople has rarities such as wax lips and Boston Baked Beans! Butler is the next location you’re not going to want to skip! Start by utilizing the newest parking garage on South McKean Street. Across the street, make sure you check out the stunning Diners and Drive-ins mural by Walldog artist Andrew Henry. Enjoy a brief walk to Main Street and visit Dr. Sous Chop Shop for eclectic sandwiches and burgers served in a brick-walled space decked in vintage gas station curios. Afterwards, pop a few doors down for an ice cream float from a restored soda fountain. As Butler’s oldest family-

owned business, Cumming’s definitely offers nostalgic charm. Wind down your Butler County experience by catching a movie at the Starlight Drive-In (formerly Pioneer Drive-In). This location, under new ownership in 2015, has been providing affordable family entertainment since 1958. Drive-ins provide a nostalgic alternative under the stars. With the large movie screens, snacks, a video/pinball arcade and a mini golf course, the drive-in provides affordable entertainment for the entire family. Where else can you experience so many pieces of such a fantastic era? Look no further than Butler County, PA!

What is it about the Horse? Horses are a perfect partner… long flowing hair, stamina, grace, hard working… what’s not to love? Even if you, like most people, don’t own your own horse, there are plenty of opportunities to bond with and observe these majestic creatures.

22

If you’re lucky and have your own horse, Moraine State Park has 20 miles of equestrian trails. Horses are also welcome along the Butler-Freeport Trail. If you want to ride a horse, you have several options. Bear Run Campground offers pony rides for a small fee. Private and group lessons are available through Glade Run Adventures in Zelienople and Lutherlyn Equestrian Center in Prospect. Glade Run has an equicizer, an indoor riding arena with a wheelchair accessible mounting ramp, an outdoor covered riding arena, and a number of walking/riding trails. Lutherlyn offers a bank barn and a 20-shed row-style barn with 10x10’ box stalls, a heated tack room, 85x150’ indoor sand arena, a stadium jumping field, and miles and miles of beautiful trails. Horse-drawn carriage rides and hayrides can be found in multiple locations including Peaceful Valley Campground and local festivals such as the Saxonburg Festival of the Arts and Winterfest. Other events are horse-centric like Horse Trading Days with its annual horse parade. Agricultural events including the Big Butler Fair, Butler Farm Show, North Washington Rodeo and the Butler County Farm Tour offer various activities to observe from barrel racing to bronc riding.

Last but not least, horses can even be found in art. Several of these photos were submissions to the Tourism Bureau’s quarterly photo contest. The center image is a gorgeous jade sculpture which can be viewed at The Maridon Museum in Butler. So what is it about the horse? So much!


Fun Facts Washington’s Trail 1753

I

n 1753, the imperial nations of France and Great Britain and the Native Americans all claimed control of the Ohio Country, the area encompassing present-day western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio. Acting on orders from Virginia Governor Robert Dinwiddie, twenty-one-year-old George Washington embarked upon a dangerous expedition north from Williamsburg to deliver a diplomatic message to the French ordering them to evacuate the region. Already the French had erected three forts to reinforce their claim to the area: Fort Presque Isle (Erie, PA), Fort LeBoeuf (Waterford, PA) and Fort Machault (Franklin, PA). During his journey to the French forts in the winter of 1753-1754, young Washington encountered many hazards. There were excessive rains and vast quantities of snow. He was nearly shot by an Indian guide and nearly drowned in the icy waters of the Allegheny River near presentday Pittsburgh. When Washington returned to Williamsburg in January 1754, he reported to the governor that the French intended to remain entrenched in the Ohio Country. This marked the beginning of the military struggle known as the French and Indian War. Blue road signs with Washington’s silhouette mark a commemorative trail throughout western Pennsylvania. (The trail is considered commemorative, as sections of the actual path are open to debate.)

Washington’s Trail, or Warshington’s Trail, as you might hear a lot of people in the Pittsburgh region say, is a commemorative driving trail that follows the path a young George Washington took on a mission to avert a war with the French in 1753. Washington had reddish hair and was

The Great Outdoors

Moraine State Park One piece of Butler County thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not so little is Moraine State Park. This 16,725acre natural treasure began thousands of years ago. When the glaciers retreated, they left behind the accumulated debris, which is called a moraine; also how the park got its name. In the late 1800s, wells were drilled (and later abandoned) to extract oil and gas from the land. In 1926, Dr. Frank Preston moved to Meridian from England. An amateur geologist and naturalist, Preston formed the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy to purchase land to recreate the glacial landscape and preserve open space. Four-hundred twenty-two gas and oil wells were plugged, deep mines were sealed, graded strip mines were back-filled, the soil was fertilized, and thousands of trees, shrubs, grasses and clovers were planted. Muddy Creek was dammed to create Lake Arthur. In 1970, the park was finally dedicated. Less than 50 years old, this gorgeous state park seems as if it has been there forever. Moraine attracts about two millions visitors each year. With its multitude of outdoor recreation options, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to see why! So take some time to forget your troubles and enjoy the simple delights Mother Nature offers.

{ 24

A little piece of a big trail runs through Moraineâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the North Country Trail. This national scenic trail is 4,600 miles, spanning seven states.

}


Did You Know? The park is open daily from sunrise to sunset, all year ‘round. Park information, launch permits, cabin information and assistance can be obtained at the park office near the entrance to the South Shore. It is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., plus weekends during the summer. Didn’t pack a picnic? There are two concessions in the park serving a variety of hot and cold fast foods including beverages and desserts, open Memorial Day through Labor Day, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The first is at Lakeview Beach on the North Shore, about five miles from Route 422. The second is at Pleasant Valley Beach along Pleasant Valley Road on the South Shore, about one mile from Route 422 and a half mile from the park office. Memorial Day through Labor Day (and weekends after, weather permitting), you can rent motor boats, pontoon boats for up to 11 people, canoes, rowboats, paddleboats, kayaks (tandem or single) and stand up paddleboards at Crescent Bay Marina. The paved seven-mile bike trail is quite popular as it winds near the shoreline. Beware though—it is not a loop! If you need to rent a bike, no problem! On North Shore Drive, about 1 1/2 miles from Route 422, the bike rental is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends and holidays from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Interested in other activities but don’t have the necessary supplies? Fishing supplies and disc golf discs can both be borrowed with proper ID. One of the park’s top attractions is the Nautical Nature operated by Moraine Preservation Fund. This 37-passenger enclosed pontoon boat cruises late May through late October, operating on a regular schedule. Most cruises are on weekends, but there are special weekday dining cruises as well. In addition to the boat, Moraine Preservation Fund operates the Owlet Gift Shop and has completed several beneficial environmental projects such as Project BATitat and an Osprey Reintroduction Program.

Fun in every season!

Geocaching Treasure Hunt Little Things - Literally! What is geocaching? “A realworld, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.” (source: geocaching. com) Where are these caches? Everywhere! A brief look at Butler County on a geocaching map, and you’ll be stunned! Some highly-concentrated areas can be found along the ButlerFreeport Trail, and in State Game

Lands 95 where there’s actually 90-some caches which form the silhouette of a Jeep! They really are everywhere, though… in small towns, in Cranberry Township, and of course, in parks. How can you play? Make an account on geocaching.com which is as simple as logging in with your Facebook account. (You don’t have to have Facebook.) From there, check out the map. Decide which you want to find, grab your GPS device or a GPSenabled mobile phone and get

scouting! The cache itself could be a tupperware container or something much more elaborate. Inside, you’ll find little treasures and a log book. Help yourself to a treasure, but be sure to replenish it with one of your own. Sign the log, and then return it to its original location for the next treasure hunter to find. Chances are you’ll find happy meal toys and other such trinkets, but some have actually found gold and other valuables. There is also a geocoin trend. A geocoin is a

Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania (ASWP) is an environmental education and conservation engagement organization that serves a seven-county region surrounding Pittsburgh, but with a special focus in Butler County. In fact, two of our three locations in Western PA—Succop Nature Park (which is just south of the city on Route 8 on West Airport Road) and Todd Nature Reserve (in Buffalo Township near Sarver)—are found within the county.

So what are you waiting for? Go discover the little treasures hiding all across the land!

special coin created as a kind of signature item or calling card. Each Geocoin is assigned a unique tracking ID which allows them to travel from cache to cache or to be passed amongst friends, picking up stories along the way.

ASWP is currently in a multi-year Centennial Capital campaign that is looking to enhance Succop while building a new center near Todd, along the Butler-Freeport Trail. Once completed, Butler County will be one of only a couple other counties in the entire United States that has two Audubon Centers within its borders! Why do birds matter, and why should people, businesses, organizations, and government officials all work to protect the bird species and habitat found here in Butler County? Birds are arguably the most visible and measurable indicators of environmental health in our natural areas. The “canary in a coal mine” is as true now as it was during the early days of mining. Birds are often the first indicator that something is amiss in our environment, noting a change before it impacts humans. ASWP coordinates two bird-centric events and programs in the county—the South Butler

Christmas Bird Count (CBC) (held every year on the first Saturday in January) and the Master Birder Program. The South Butler CBC focuses on a geographic area spanning just south of Butler, west to Zelienople and Cranberry, and east to Saxonburg. This long-standing citizen science program helps take account of the health and diversity of bird species in this portion of the county and is free and open to the public. The Master Birder Program’s (modeled after the Master Gardeners) purpose is for every participant to emerge from the course with a lasting knowledge of and appreciation for birds, particularly the birds of western Pennsylvania. The class meets twelve times a year with twelve field outings (five of which are to Butler County birding hotspots), and participants must be able to identify local species both by ear and sight. So if you’re looking to get outdoors and bird or just appreciate the fantastic locations in which to enjoy our wide diversity of avian species, Butler County is the place to be!

Butler-Freeport Community Trail Butler County’s only Rails-to-Trails trail

68

8

The Butler-Freeport Community Trail is a rail-trail, preserving the route of Butler County’s first railroad (1871), the Western Pennsylvania Railroad, which connected the City of Butler to the Allegheny River port of Freeport. As a rails-to-trails project, the 21-mile trail offers a level, natural crushed limestone surface with a gradual uphill grade as it travels north (barely noticeable to walkers) and the converse downhill grade as it travels 422 south (greatly enjoyed by bicyclists). Dogs are welcome but required to be on a leash and under the control of the person walking them on the trail.
