poster to PRINT and SHARE
MEET: on Walnut Spring Lane at the Walnut Spring Park sign one block East of University Dr.
SUPPLIES: Dress to get dirty. Waterproof footwear a plus. Gloves and clippers provided, or bring your own.
THE PROJECT: Remove invasive plants (privet, Japanese honeysuckle, multiflora rose) that are crowding out native shrubs, choking walnut trees, and blocking the view from the bird blind.
LEADERSHIP: The project is led by Greg Williams, a PA IPL board member with decades of environmental education and habitat care experience. Greg is willing to lead workparties, and he loves to help congregations jumpstart longer term habitat care projects. Habitat care commitments can be a great way for congregations to take action, build community, stay grounded in the natural world, see immediate results, and have fun doing it.
RSVP: to Greg at 215.242.0854 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Lots of climate work can be pretty conceptual and long-developing. In this workshop, by contrast, we will do physical work that actually improves resilience in the face of climate change.
This workshop is a follow-on to a work party associated with Pennsylvania Interfaith Power & Light’s 2016 Annual Conference: An Environment of Faith. Download a Creation Care program slip for more ideas.
