Our Soul Matters theme for April is Awakening. April is a month of awakening in the natural world when the flowers bloom, the trees leaf out, and a walk in the woods is accompanied by a chorus of birds. Insects that have overwintered as nymphs in the streams emerge in swarms and reproduce to feed the fish that awake from their winter lethargy.
The Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy (PWC) has celebrated this annual awakening every year with stream clean-ups, a Lenape Challenge race, tree plantings and a host of other activities. PWC has been protecting the land and water of the Perkiomen Watershed for more than 60 years – longer than our Fellowship has been in existence.
TPUUF is located in the heart of the Perkiomen Creek Watershed. Some of us have been officers, members, employees and volunteers with PWC. We share with this organization a dedication to our Seventh Principle – Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
Three members of the PWC Board of Directors will give presentations, each from their own perspective, on the history, challenges and accomplishments of PWC and the natural world of the Perkiomen Watershed.
