March 30: Appalachian Trail and Strategy Meeting

Click to Enlarge Map
A pipeline tour where the Tennessee Pipeline crosses the Appalachian Trail in New Jersey's High Point State Park will leave from the Deckertown Turnpike trail head (GPS coordinates N41 15.148 W74 41.371) at 10AM on March 30. Experts will discuss the impact on soils, vegetation, rare habitat, property values, tourism, and recreation. Participants should wear hiking shoes or boots and be prepared to hike 1.1 miles, 20 minutes each way on intermediate terrain. This tour is entirely on public park land and is family friendly.

The hike will be followed by a 12PM Strategy Discussion in Milford PA at Angels Backstreet Coffee, 611 Broad St, Milford PA. The discussion will be a space to hear about what our movement has accomplished so far, give feedback, and help plan for the future as pipeline construction continues. Angels' entrance is on the East John Street (left) side of the building looking from Broad St. A portion of Angels' and adjoining Calling All Angels Thrift Shoppe's proceeds goes towards the Ecumenical Food Pantry.

All newcomers are welcome!

We will be joining in National Fossil Fools Day actions on April 1 with more information on points to gather to be announced once we are aware of pipeline construction schedules. For more information call 570-269-9589 and check the Stop the Tennessee Pipeline! website at www.notennesseepipeline.blogspot.com
