Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf and First Lady Frances Wolf today invited the public to visit the Governor’s Residence in Harrisburg this Sunday, August 9 for the upcoming “Second Sunday” event, focused on Creatures of the Garden. Each second Sunday from June through September, visitors are invited to attend a series of free summer events at the Governor’s Residence and gardens from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Each event highlights a specific theme and features family-friendly activities.

“We hope visitors from Central Pennsylvania and across the commonwealth will take advantage of this opportunity to explore the Pennsylvania Governor’s Residence and gardens,” said First Lady Frances Wolf. “Second Sunday events at the Residence, which take place throughout the summer, provide a unique opportunity for the public to visit this Pennsylvania landmark and also participate in fun summer activities for kids and the whole family.”

The theme of this week’s event is Creatures of the Garden and will feature presentations by the Forgotten Friend Reptile Sanctuary, ZooAmerica, the Backyard Beekeepers Association and the Pennsylvania Game Commission. Residence docents, or tour guides, will also be available to provide information as visitors are invited to participate in self-guided tours of the Residence and gardens.

Additionally, Second Sunday event visitors will be able to view the current art exhibition entitled, “Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania; Through the Lens of Paul W. Meyer,” which is on display in the State Rooms through August 31.
