Huntingdon-The Nature Trail: Habitat Restoration
February 1, 2020 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PMFree
- Saturday, Feb. 1st, 2:00-4:00 PM
MEET: In the far end of the parking lot past the playing fields at Detwiler Park, 400 Standing Stone Road, Huntingdon, PA. We will be working at the North End of Detwiler Park at The Nature Trail.
SUPPLIES: Dress to get dirty. Waterproof footwear recommended. Gloves and clippers provided, or bring your own. If weather is too wet, Greg will cancel. Call to confirm.
THE PROJECT: Standing Stone Creek’s riparian zone needs the protection of native plants so we’re removing more non-natives and then replacing with native plants this Spring. LEADERSHIP: The project is led by Greg Williams, a PA IPL board member with decades of environmental education and habitat care experience. Greg leads work parties at Walnut Springs Park in State College and on the Lower Trail, where 35 different people have logged almost 250 hours of work. 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.
