MEET: At Mt. Etna station on the Lower Trail. Bike there on the Lower Trail. By car, turn off HWY 22 at Polecat Hollow Road and head east to Fox Run Rd then turn left. Look for Mt. Etna parking lot on your right.
THE PROJECT: The Episcopal Churches of Huntingdon 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 Spring. One of these dates will be the tree planting with chances to memorialize. We welcome all to come 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.
