SUPPLIES: Dress to get dirty. Bring your own tools, gloves, and masks. We will work with social distancing. If weather is too wet, Greg will cancel. Call to confirm.
THE PROJECT: The Episcopal Churches of and Blair County have adopted this section of the Lower Trail and have, for 2 years, been removing non-native invasives and will, again, be planting native trees this Fall. We welcome all to the work party from 9:00-11:00 a.m. At 11:00 a.m. we will be bringing our own brunch and then a liturgy will take place at 11:30 a.m.
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 at Detwiler Park in Huntingdon. Get on our email list and get updates. Greg invites congregation and community groups to join us or contact him.
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.
