Rockview Land

The College of Agricultural Sciences purchased approximately 452 acres of land bordering the Spring Creek Canyon in Benner Township, previously owned by the State Correctional Institution at Rockview.

Making the now inaccessible land available for agricultural research and as living laboratories and classrooms stands to benefit not only Penn State students but all state residents. Transferring the land to Penn State, the local township, and the commission will also foster new recreational uses of the land for area residents and visitors alike.
