Walnut Spring Park-Habitat Restoration Series
August 28, 2020 @ 9:00 AM - 11:00 AMFree
- Friday, August 28th 9:00-11:00 AM-State College at Walnut Spring Park
MEET: On Walnut Spring Lane at the Walnut Spring Park sign one block East of University Dr., just before the road ascends a hill. From there, we’ll walk to the marsh.
SUPPLIES: Dress to get dirty. Waterproof footwear recommended. Bring your own gloves, clippers, and masks. If weather is too wet, Greg will cancel. Call to confirm. We will be social distancing.
THE PROJECT: Over the last 2 years, we have removed invasive plants that have been crowding out native shrubs. Last year we planted 200 NATIVE PLANTS, like this maple leaf viburnum, which support local fauna! We will be tamping back the competing non-natives.
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 and at Detwiler Park in Huntingdon. 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, (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.
