    Community Planting Day at Abington Junior High School with the support of the Carbon Fund – FREE


    Join us to plant trees and reinforce fences to enhance the existing buffer along East Baeder Creek. This creekside planting beautifies the campus, reduces erosion, protects water quality, and improves wildlife habitat along this Tookany Creek headwater stream.

     

    This project is in partnership with the Abington School District and Abington EAC and funded by the The PA Carbon Reduction Fund. The PA Carbon Reduction Fund is an initiative managed by the Pennsylvania Environmental Council in partnership with WGL Energy Services and Sterling Planet.
