Nixon Park Tree Tending with Emmanuel UCC, York


We are looking for a few new tree helpers. 

At Emmanuel UCC, York we have been TREE TENDING at Nixon County Park for 11 years.  We go to the park as a group to a small area in the wetlands between the creek and the road that leads to the Nature Center.  We check on the trees which we have planted over the years, straighten the cages, make sure the stakes are sturdy in the ground, and pull invasive weeds in the area. We all love being out in nature and enjoying creation.  Birds appear often, sometimes Deer, and a Great White Heron a couple of times.  As “Many Hands Make Light Work”, we would love if a couple more people from the York Association could join us (usually on the first Saturday of the Month) at Nixon County Park from 9 to 11 during the growing season. We hope to start on April 13th (subject to change!) 


For details about parking and any date changes, call Libby 717-887-6633 or message us on the church’s Facebook page: Emmanuel York UCC.

Habitat For Humanity

In addition, to the public invitation to join Habitat during their 2 week Women's Build, the York Association has a designated day (June 12th) for 10 UCC volunteers to work together. 


The goal of York Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build program is to empower the women of our community to exercise their building potential by building homes that will give a York family strength, stability, and independence.  

The UCC Association volunteers on the build site will work alongside the Habitat Team and homeowners at  their Red Lion Duplex located at 78 E High Street, Red Lion PA.  The build day begins at 8 a.m. and ends around 2:30 p.m. There will be a virtual orientation before your volunteer shift, 

They will provide all the PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) that you will need out on the build site, and lunch will be provided.


Interested persons will need to contact Glenn Young at, by June 5th in order to complete a designated registration and password process.
