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 electrical or too wet, Greg will cancel. Call to confirm.
THE PROJECT: We planted over 150 bare root, native plants in this area this Spring and will tend them during their first summer, making sure they have enough light and, if necessary, water.
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 200 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.
