Upcoming LLWS Activities
Tree Maintenance Volunteer event – Dec. 4, 2021 9:00 am to Noon
Volunteers will work to maintain trees that were planted in 2020. Work includes straightening and re-staking knocked over trees and clearing tall grass from near bush plantings. Goal of work is to give the 2020 planted trees and bushes a fighting chance to mature and shade this grassy creek buffer. Project located on Little Lehigh adjacent to Spring Creek Road.
People can bring shovels to dig up grass around trees. Parking is available along Spring Creek Road. See location map below. Use contact form above to confirm if you plan to take part.
Coffee and donuts will be available for volunteers.
Next Meeting – December 7, 2021
Volunteer Recognition event and December meeting. Wegman’s Allentown, 5:30 PM. Pick up some food or drink before joining us in back room.

Trout Creek Cleanup
On Halloween, 18 volunteers haunted Trout Creek Park and scared up 45 bags of trash plus many bulk items. We estimated about 900 lbs. of garbage was removed from the waterway. Thanks to Chuck at City of Allentown for giving up part of his Sunday to haul away the garbage and Luis for planning work!
