Saturday May 12, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., join the State College bikers, and the PAIPL Circuit Riders from the three county area at Detwiler Park, see the attached flyer for details. We’ll celebrate the ministry of habitat restoration at Detwiler and four other locations involving over 100 volunteers and at least 1000 hours of their labor. We’ll do some removal of invasive plants so bring clippers. Also bring extra shoes and socks to lend to the bikers so they can change out of their bike shoes.
We’ll get a short tour of the beautiful nature trail along Standing Stone Creek by Celina Seftas from Blair County Conservation district. Wildflowers were still blooming when I visited on Monday.and we might also see eagles,osprey, snapping turtles and frogs.
Finally, our fearless leader Greg Williams will be celebrating successful surgery on his left wrist that hebroke 2 weeks ago. But I’ll be be especially lifting up the work of 21 tree planters whose work enabled us to plant nearly 350 bare root native trees along the Lower Trail over the past 2 months with 100 more still to plant next week. What a great team !
Please join us.
