Prepare for your visit to the SEC!

We look forward to seeing you soon! Here are a few things to know when preparing for your visit to the SEC:

Footwear: Even on a bright sunny day it is recommended that everyone wear shoes or boots they don't mind getting dirty in the event you walk throughout the nine-acre site.

What to Bring: You may want to bring a reusable bottle of water with you, sunscreen on a nice day, hat and/or bug repellant.

Parking and Directions: The Sustainability Experience Center is just off Porter Road and across the street from the Jordan East Parking Lot. You will be able to park in the grass lot in front of MorningStar or on the gravel driveway by the carport. This site has proven to be a little tricky to find, so please be sure to check ou thte Google Maps link, share with anyone else who may need it, put it in the GPS, etc.

Tick Prevention: Please see our fact sheet on tick prevention


  • Important Forms: Please be sure everyone on your trip has a permission slip and a liability form. There are two types of permission/release of liability forms, one for minors and one for adults. Please have a completed form for every participant (student, chaperone) when you arrive. Individuals without the permission slip/release of liability form will be unable to participate.   Penn State students/employees doing visits as part of Penn State do not need signed waivers.
  • Notification Letter for Outside Groups: This letter states Penn State policies regarding minors on campus and expectations of our visitors bringing minors.  Please review this letter prior to your trip.
