Tree Planting on Swatara Creek

Help protect our ecosystem - includes fun, fellowship and free snacks and drinks. My name is Amber LeFever and I am an environmental intern at Londonderry Township in Middletown, PA (near Harrisburg). On June 14th we are planting 600 trees near Swatara Creek as a buffer to help with storm water run off that eventually leads into the Susquehanna. We are in desperate need of volunteers and would greatly appreciate anyone that would be willing to help. We will be planting from 9 A.M till about noon. Snacks and drinks will be provided and parking signs will be put up to avoid confusion. The planting will take place on Swatara Creek Road, Middletown PA.

    I left two shovels behind. Both have bandanas tied to the handle. Did anyone pick them up? Do you know who I could contact to get them back?

      Hi Angie, if you look on the map up above there is a red marker for the location. There is not an exact address because there is no longer any houses on the properties. If you need further directions feel free to text me[masked] 4153. There will be white signs up on the end of Swatara Road and Red Bridge Road

    Hello Everyone!
    The event is still on, but due to rain the grounds are fairly muddy. PLEASE dress accordingly. If you are able to bring your own shovels, please do so. Be sure to put your name on your tools because they can easily be mistaken for some one elses. If anyone has any further questions please text me at[masked] 4153.
    See you tomorrow !
