HUNTINGDON — Riparian Zone Work Party
June 21, 2017 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
MEET: in the far end of the parking lot past the playing fields at Detweiler Park, 400 Standing Stone Road, Huntingdon, PA.
SUPPLIES: Dress to get dirty. Gloves and clippers provided, or bring your own. If weather is too dangerous or wet, Greg will cancel. Call to confirm.
THE PROJECT: Standing Stone Creek’s riparian zone needs the protection of native plants so we’re removing non-natives.
LEADERSHIP: The project is led by Greg Williams, a PA IPL board member with decades of environmental education and habitat care experience. Greg also leads work parties at Walnut Springs Park in State College and on the Lower Trail, where 35 different people have logged almost 200 hours of work. Get on our email list and get updates. Greg invites church and community groups to join us or contact him and he’ll organize a work party just for your group.
RSVP: to Greg at 215.242.0854 or firstname.lastname@example.org
SHARE: get flier to print and post.
Lots of climate work can be pretty conceptual and long-developing. In these work parties, by contrast, we will do physical work that actually improves resilience in the face of climate change.
These work parties are part of the work of Pennsylvania Interfaith Power & Light, (paipl.us). We also pray, educate, advocate, weatherize, and bring a moral and religious perspective to climate change through the work of over 50 church communities and other individuals.
