STATE COLLEGE: Habitat Restoration anniversary workparty
October 28, 2017 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PMFree
MEET: on Walnut Spring Lane at the Walnut Spring Park sign one block East of University Dr. in State College. From there we’ll walk to the marsh.
SUPPLIES: Dress to get dirty. Gloves and clippers provided, or bring your own. If weather is too wet, Greg will cancel. Call to confirm.
THE PROJECT: Remove invasive plants (privet,Tartarian honeysuckle, multiflora rose) that are crowding out native shrubs,(right) filling up the wetland, choking walnut trees, and blocking the view from the bird blind
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 on the Lower Trail. At Walnut Springs, 35 different workers have logged almost 300 hours of work, in the last 11 months. Get on our email list and get updates.
RSVP to Greg at 215.242.0854 or via 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. We also pray, educate, advocate, weatherize, and bring a moral and religious perspective to climate change through the work of over 50 church communities and other individuals.
This workparty is special because it marks one year for PA IPL engaging in this work in central Pennsylvania — the first workparty was the day before our 2016 conference, and this one will be the day before our 2017 conference —Gratitude, Lament, and Renewal: Walking Together in a Time of Climate Disruption. We hope you’ll join us for both the workparty AND the conference! Each feeding us in a different way.
