The Exhibit Hall at the Environmental Education Center has been transformed into a winter environment with five outdoor scenes that replicate area's various ecosystems during the winter months. Each scene includes animals, birds, trees, and other nature-related items. On display is a beaver with an actual tree that was taken down by a beaver on the EEC property.
Everyone who enrolls in a program at the EEC during December will receive a "Frost Fest Passport" (one per household) for use throughout the month. For each of the scheduled programs that a member of a household attends, the passport will be stamped. For every five stamps, the family will receive a Leisure Pursuit card that may be used toward any Somerset County Park Commission program. The EEC is part of the Somerset County Park Commission.
