MEET: At the very end of the Lower Trail between Flowing Springs Station and the bridge over the Frankstown Branch of the Juniata.
THE PROJECT: In 2018 and 2019 we planted 1000 bare root trees and shrubs on the Trail to create better habitat for birds, wildlife, and humans! At this site, this year, where magnificent white ash had to be cut down, there is still room for more silky dogwood, buttonbush or black willow livestakes along the creeks. We’d love your help.
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.
