Spark the Wave is student run club from Pottsgrove High School. Our mission is help further the Arboretum Project and to raise environmental awareness in our community. We have helped develop the master plan, participated in a number of service days at the property, and even hosted our own. Our contribution is outlined as follows:
- We worked with the GreenAllies and the Upper Pottsgrove community to sponsor six volunteer work days, and with experts to plan features for the environmental education center we are developing at the Althouse Arboretum.
- We worked with the Pottsgrove School District and our community service club “Spark the Wave” to introduce K-3 students to the property with our popular October “Night Hike.” Over 350 community members came out and had a fantastic time!
- We worked as a team to create a “master plan” for a one-of-a-kind environmental education center at the Althouse Arboretum.
- We worked with Upper Pottsgrove Open Space Committee and the Township Planning Commission to get our “master plan” approved and partially funded.
