SATURDAY, JULY 14 , 10:00 am-noon
THURSDAY, JULY 26, 10:00 am-noon
Walnut Spring Park, State College 16801

Join us!     Flier to share

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 windy or electrical, 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. This allows native plants, like this maple leaf viburnum to flourish.

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 wacmbook@aol.com

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 faith communities and other individuals.

THE PROJECT: We planted 400 bare root trees and shrubs to create better habitat for birds, wildlife, and humans! The flags and tubes mark where we planted.
