Spring 2015 Interfaith Environmental Stewardship Event

The Paper

SPRING, TX - Join with people of all faiths, or no faith at all, in caring for our shared environment on World Water Day, Sunday, March 22nd, from 1:30 – 4:30 p.m.  We will engage in hands-on environmental stewardship by removing invasive species and planting native plants in wetlands areas at the Willow Waterhole Conservation Reserve. This event will offer activities for all ages and skill levels, so bring the whole family, your neighbors and your friends.  Meet at The Gathering Place, 5310 South Willow Dr., Houston 77035 to sign in.  Metro bus lines 33 and 163 stop nearby.  Tools/supplies will be available, but participants are asked to bring empty milk jugs or soda bottles to use in watering the newly-planted plants. In addition, those who can do so are asked to bring wheelbarrows, rakes, and shovels, to ensure sufficient quantities.  This event is organized by Christ the King Evangelical Lutheran Church, Congregation Brith Shalom, and the Dialogue Institute of the Southwest, in partnership with the Willow Waterhole Greenspace Conservancy.  The conservancy requires signing of a waiver to participate.    Contact Lisa at gcs.lrc@gmail.com or 713-372-7345 for more information or to sign up to help (and receive a copy of the waiver form).
