Flowing Springs end of The Lower Trail, off HWY 22 near Canoe Creek
Join us! Flier to share
MEET: The state has constructed a new road that turns off of Hwy 22 between the curve near Canoe Creek SP and the curve near Rispoli’s farm stand. We’ll be at the very end of the Lower Trail, between Flowing Springs Station and the bridge over Frankstown Branch of the Juniata. If you don’t see us, give my cell a call or a text at 215-242-0854.
SUPPLIES: Dress to get dirty. Waterproof footwear a plus. Gloves, shovels, and clippersprovided, or bring your own. Call to confirm!
THE PROJECT: We planted 400 bare root trees and shrubs to create better habitat for birds, wildlife, and humans ! The flags and tubes mark where we planted. In July, we’ll weed around them and make sure they are getting enough light to flourish! The native herbaceous layer is high, wear boots and long pants— consider bringing a weed whacker if you have one.
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 and at Detwiler Park in Huntingdon. Get on our email list and get updates.
RSVP: to Greg at 215.242.0854 or email@example.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, (paipl.us). We also pray, educate, advocate, weatherize, and bring a moral and religious perspective to climate change through the work of over 50 faith communities and other individuals.
