Indivisible Warren

Indivisible Warren PA will hold its bimonthly meeting this Thursday, June 25, at Emanuel Church of Christ (1710 Penna. Ave, East, Warren), from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. All are welcome. For more information on Indivisible, see www.indivisibleguide.com.

Trail stewardship

Friends of Allegheny Wilderness has been the formal adopting organization of the 13-mile Hickory Creek Wilderness Trail since the group’s inception, keeping the trail clear of fallen woody debris and encroaching live vegetation for almost two decades now.

Volunteers will meet at the Hickory Creek Wilderness trailhead parking lot on Hearts Content Road on Friday, July 26, spend Friday and Saturday nights in the wilderness, and hike out on Sunday. The group should be able to clear the entire 13-mile trail over the course of the weekend.

Since this is a federally-designated wilderness area under the Wilderness Act of 1964, no power tools such as chainsaws will be used, in order to help perpetuate Hickory Creek’s wildness and the rustic nature of the trail. Hand tools such as axes and hand saws will be the primary method of clearing the trail. So, there is no specialized training needed (such as chainsaw training), and beginners are welcome.

Contact FAW at info@pawild.org with any questions you may have about the weekend, or to sign up for the project. There is no cost to participate, but each volunteer must bring their own camping gear, food, and water (or water filtration device) for the weekend, and come prepared for any weather conditions we may encounter.

Family reunion

The 108th Wenzel Reunion will be held on Saturday, July 27, at Werner Park. The chicken BBQ meal will be served at 1 p.m., but feel free to come early and enjoy the day. Remember to bring your favorite dish to pass.
