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.

STATE COLLEGE: Potluck, Movie, Discussion FROM THE ASHES

Join the PA Interfaith Power & Light Bike Riders for a potluck dinner and free advance screening of the National Geographic documentary film From the Ashes on

Wednesday, June 14th potluck at 6:00, movie begins at 7:00 

 

From the Ashes captures Americans in communities across the country as they wrestle with the legacy of the coal industry and what its future could and should be. From Appalachia to the West’s Powder River Basin, the film goes beyond the rhetoric of the “war on coal” to present compelling and often heartbreaking stories about what’s at stake for our economy, health, and climate. The movie invites audiences to learn more about an industry on the edge and what it means for their lives.

Discussion will include individual and public actions toward care of our Common Home, including fast and fair transition to a clean energy future.

All are welcome.
