STATE COLLEGE— Habitat restoration workparty – Walnut Spring
March 31, 2018 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PMFree
Wednesday March 21, 1-3 p.m.
Saturday March 31, 2-4 p.m.
MEET: on Walnut Spring Lane at the Walnut Spring Park sign one block East of University Dr. From there we’ll walk to the marsh.
SUPPLIES: Dress to get dirty. Waterproof footwear a plus. Gloves and clippers provided, or bring your own. If weather is too cold or wet, Greg will cancel. Call to confirm.
THE PROJECT: Remove invasive plants (privet,Tartarian honeysuckle, multiflora rose) that are crowding out native shrubs, 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. In State College, 46 different workers have logged almost 211 hours of work, in the last 12 months. We have cleared over 1500 square feet of dense understory. Get on our email list and get updates.
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. 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.
