Three bear carvings donated to park

Cumberland Times News

NEW GERMANY — Visitors to New Germany State Park are sure to see a bear this season — or at least a bear carving. The park now features three unique wood carvings, all donated to the park by local artist John “Sacco” Carter. Sacco and his son, Christopher, used a chainsaw to create the carvings, which range in size from four to seven feet tall.

“Sacco is an extremely talented artist,” said Ranger Erin Thomas. “We are honored that he chose to donate his work to New Germany State Park.”

Sacco, who is originally from Colorado, started carving about 10 years ago when he received a chainsaw for Christmas.

“I believe that wood carving is a gift,” said Sacco. “I donated the carvings to New Germany because I wanted to say ‘thank you’ to Garrett County and the many people who have made a difference in my life.”

The donated carvings can be found at the park entrance and at the ranger station. Additional carvings, also created by Sacco, are available for purchase at the New Germany gift shop, located inside the ranger station.
