WILLIAMSBURG — Bike & Clip on the Lower Trail
August 25, 2017 @ 8:00 AM - 10:00 AMFree
- Saturday, Aug. 5, 3-5:00 P.M.
- Friday, Aug 25, 8-10:00 A.M.
MEET: in the parking lot of the Williamsburg Trailhead of the Lower Trail, on East First St., 1½ blocks in from High St. OR at the work site, between mile 8/9.
SUPPLIES: Dress to get dirty. Gloves and clippers provided, or bring your own. If weather is too wet, Greg will cancel. Call to confirm.
THE PROJECT: Japanese Knotweed, a particularly efficient invasive, can grow inches each day, spreads by rhizomes and flying seeds, and shades out native plants. Rather than spraying, we’ll clip it to the ground several times a growing season.
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. On the Lower Trail, in the last 8 months, 35 different people have logged almost 250 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
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.
