Walnut Spring Park-Habitat Restoration Series
September 25 @ 3:00 PM - 5:00 PMFree
- Friday, September 25th 3:00-5:00 PM-McCormick Springs at Walnut Spring Park
MEET: On Walnut Spring Lane just east of University Dr., where there is a field of stakes and green tubes. We’ll cross over to the trail that goes on the left side of the creek.
SUPPLIES: Dress to get dirty. Waterproof footwear recommended. Gloves and clippers provided or bring your own. If weather is too cold or wet, Greg will cancel. Call to confirm. Bring your own mask as we will be social distancing as we work.
THE PROJECT: Over the last 3 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’re now almost ready for to begin planting on this lovely new spot, McCormick Spring.
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.
