WILLIAMSBURG HUNTINGDON — Habitat Care workparties on the Lower Trail

March 25 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Free

Lower Trail workparty Nov 2016

March 4 and March 25 — join us for one work party, or both!  

MEET: in the parking lot of the Williamsburg Trailhead of the Lower Trail, on East First St., 1½ blocks in from High St.

SUPPLIES: Dress to get dirty. Waterproof footwear a plus. Gloves and clippers provided, or bring your own. If weather is too cold or wet, Greg will cancel. Call to confirm.

THE PROJECT: Remove invasive plants (privet, Tartarian honeysuckle, multiflora rose) that are crowding out native shrubs, choking trees, and blocking the view of the river.  We are also clearing so we can  plant natives in April and May!

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 4 months, 29 different people have logged 105 hours of work.

SPREAD THE WORD: Download a copy of the flier.

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.
