MEET: on Westerly Parkway in the fenced in Wetlands across from the Parkway Plaza Shopping Center. We’ll be working on the upper trail.

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

THE PROJECT: This water detention basin was turned into a park through the work of the Borough, their staff, and many volunteers. We’ll be helping to keep the non-native invasives under control so native species can thrive

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 on the Lower Trail. At Walnut Springs, 30 different workers have logged almost 150 hours of work, in the last 8 months. Get on our email list and get updates.

RSVP: to Greg at 215.242.0854 or wacmbook@aol.com

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. 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.
