Membership Benefits
Hartwick College's Pine Lake Environmental Campus is a living laboratory, a recreation area, and a living alternative for Hartwick College students. Plant, animal, insect and bird species abound, along with a variety of aquatic life in the lake, streams and marshes - and especially at Mud Lake, a high-altitude bog. Cabins are rented during the summer. Meeting spaces are available in the Vaudevillian, Robertson Lodge, Lakeside Classroom, the Strawbale House, and the Picnic Pavilion. Swimming is available when lifeguards are on duty during the summer.
