Ridge Center helps fill post-holiday break

Are your children already bored with their holiday toys? Looking for something to keep them occupied until school starts again after the break?

Try a trip to the Tom Ridge Environmental Center, 301 Peninsula Drive. The center is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and general admission to the exhibits is free, although there is a price if you want to see a movie on the Big Green Screen.

Take the kids up the 131 steps to the top of the tower to help tire them out.

If you go on Friday, you can take part in the “Wild Holiday: Winter Animals of PI” program led by a Presque Isle State Park staff member from 2-3:30 p.m.. You’ll learn about what animals do in the cold season. The program is free and no registration is required.

To learn more, visit or call (814) 833-7424.
