MEET: in the parking lot on East First St. at the Lower Trail sign 1.5 blocks from High St.

SUPPLIES: Dress to get dirty. Waterproof footwear a plus. Bring a water bottle. We can provide some gloves and clippers, but please label and bring your own if you have them.

THE PROJECT: Remove invasive plants (privet, oriental bittersweet, multiflora rose) that arecrowding out native shrubs and trees along the Central PA Rail Trail that runs along the Frankstown Branch of the Juniata River.

 RSVP: to Greg at 215.242.0854 or by email.

LEADERSHIP: The project is led by Greg Williams, a PA IPL board member with decades of environmental education and habitat care experience. Greg loves to help congregations and communities jumpstart longer term habitat care projects. Habitat care commitments can be a great way for groups to take action, build community, stay grounded in the natural world, see immediate results, and HAVE FUN doing it.

Lots of climate work can be pretty conceptual and long-developing. This project, by contrast, involves physical work that actually improves biodiversity and resilience in the face of climate change.

This workparty is a collaborative effort between Central PA Rails-to-Trails, Stone Church of the Brethren in Huntingdon, and PA Interfaith Power & Light. Employees of the Bedford distribution center of REI have been warmly invited as part of REI’s Black Friday #OptOutside initiative.
