- Monday, Sept. 21st, 10:00 AM-12:00 PM
- Saturday, Sept. 26th, 10:00 AM-12:00 PM
MEET: In the upstream end of the parking lot past the playing fields at Detwiler Park, 400 Standing Stone Road, Huntingdon, PA.
SUPPLIES: Dress to get dirty. Waterproof footwear recommended. Gloves and clippers provided, or bring your own. If weather is too cold or wet, Greg will cancel. Call to confirm. Bring a mask as we will be socially distancing as we work.
THE PROJECT: Standing Stone Creek’s riparian zone needs the protection of native plants so we’re creating cleared circles around native trees.
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 and on the Lower Trail. Get on our email list and get updates. Greg invites congregation 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 by email.
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 congregation communities and other individuals.
