Today is National Gardening Day! Whether you want to grow vegetables, fruit, flowers, houseplants, or anything in between, today appreciates the time and efforts you spend doing these activities. Growing your own food lets you provide fresh and natural nourishment for your family at a fraction of grocery store prices. As many gardeners know, the benefits of gardening come from more than just the produce. Spending time in the garden also provides physical activity and an opportunity to enjoy nature. Some people don’t enjoy gardening as much as others, and if that is the case you should go support local farmers at their place of business or a farmers market. Whether you get your fresh produce from there, get seeds to start your garden, or buy flowers to lighten up your landscape a bit, it all helps local businesses! Here’s a list of some local farms, farmers markets and nurseries you can support and if i didn’t list you and you’re a local farm following us comment below so people see!! •Alettas Farm Market •Pine Grove Nursery •Uhl's 4 Star Farm and Produce •Kersey Farmers Market •St. Marys Farmers Market . . . . . #hiking #diygarden #clearfieldcounty #lovalproduce #pennsylvania #pa #snow #snowhike #snowhiking #outdoors #headwatercharitabletrust #hwct #fishing #pennsylvaniaisbeautiful #pennsylvania_wild #hikingwithdogs #hikingtrails #nature #grants #freshproduce #localfood #localbusiness #reducereuserecycle #localfarm #nationalgardeningday #plants #donate #railtrails #gardening

World Water Day is an annual United Nations (UN) observance day held on the 22nd of March that highlights the importance of fresh water. This years theme of World Water Day is "Valuing Water" and ''how we can better protect this vital resource. The value of water is about much more than its price." To learn more and see some facts go to our blog post about World Water Day: https://hwct.org/world-water-day/ Also today make sure you took the time to think about what what water means to you. . . . . . #hiking #hikingadventures #clearfieldcounty #westernpa #pennsylvania #pa #snow #snowhike #snowhiking #outdoors #headwatercharitabletrust #hwct #fishing #pennsylvaniaisbeautiful #pennsylvania_wild #hikingwithdogs #hikingtrails #nature #grants #freshwater #water #savetheearth #reducereuserecycle #rivers #creek #DEP #donate #railtrails #worldwaterday #cleanwater

Yesterday marked the 1st day of spring. You might think yup its just another season, but you know why Spring is so important especially now? Spring means get ready for longer days and increased sunshine, spending more time in the sun (and possibly rain) BUT warm weather, and tune-up the lawnmower because more sunshine means the grass will be growing. Spring allows us to spend more time outside, with its warmer and longer days. This so important right now because we have to remember there is still an pandemic going on and social distancing is still mandatory when not with people you live with. There are so many trails you are able to social distance with friends and family that you aren’t in a household with. You can still have that quality time in a safe way when it comes to being outside. Use #HWTC and #SpringBegins to post on social media and show us your Spring photos. . . . . . . #hiking #hikingadventures #clearfieldcounty #westernpa #pennsylvania #pa #spring #springiscoming #snowhiking #outdoors #headwatercharitabletrust #hwct #fishing #pennsylvaniaisbeautiful #pennsylvania_wild #hikingwithdogs #hikingtrails #nature #grants #freshwater #water #savetheearth #reducereuserecycle #rivers #creek #DEP #donate #railtrails

The third Thursday of March every year is dedicated as National Farm Rescuer Day! When a farmer cannot run their farm due to injury, illness, natural disaster, or other circumstances, farm rescuers step in and help support the farm operations to keep it running smoothly. Farm Rescue is a non-profit organization that coordinates individuals volunteering their time/resources to help farms and the families who run them in times of need. Consider volunteering yourself or sponsoring a volunteer through a donation! Another way to show support is by raising awareness on social media by using the hashtags #BeAFarmRescuer and  #FarmRescuerDay! . . . . . #hiking #hikingadventures #clearfieldcounty #westernpa #pennsylvania #pa #snow #nationalfarmrescuerday #snowhiking #outdoors #headwatercharitabletrust #hwct #fishing #pennsylvaniaisbeautiful #pennsylvania_wild #hikingwithdogs #hikingtrails #nature #grants #freshwater #water #savetheearth #reducereuserecycle #rivers #creek #DEP #donate #railtrails

Today is National Learn About Butterflies Day! Through this important day, we should learn to recognize just how important butterflies and other pollinator species are to both us and the environment as a whole. Butterflies can help pollinate the fruits and vegetables that we eat as well as wildflowers and other natural flower-bearing plants. Besides this incredibly crucial service, conserving butterfly species is also important because they are very diverse and are just simply fascinating! For instance, did you know that a Monarch Butterfly can migrate over 3,000 miles from Canada to Mexico? The list of amazing butterfly facts could extend for many pages. Conserving and planting habitat that supports native wildflowers is essential for the long-term success of many butterfly species. Even planting native flowers in the gardens around your house can be beneficial. Spring and Summer are right around the corner so take this day to celebrate, learn, and help all the unique and beautiful species of butterflies! . . . . . . . . #hiking #hikingadventures #clearfieldcounty #westernpa #pennsylvania #pa #snow #snowhike #snowhiking #outdoors #headwatercharitabletrust #hwct #fishing #pennsylvaniaisbeautiful #pennsylvania_wild #hikingwithdogs #hikingtrails #nature #grants #freshwater #water #savetheearth #reducereuserecycle #rivers #creek #DEP #donate #railtrails #butterfly #butterflies

ALMOST A YEAR AGO!! The continued success of our projects mean a lot to us and this is just one of the few we are so proud to be apart of. . Headwaters Charitable Trust is pleased to announce that $608,000 in public and private funds have been raised to develop parts of the Knox and Kane Rail Trail in Clarion and McKean Counties. In 2017, Headwaters Charitable Trust purchased the 74 mile Knox and Kane Rail Road Corridor spanning 4 counties in Northwest PA. Community groups along the corridor have formed to transform this trail into an exceptional gem. The benefits of rail trails are numerous. The most obvious benefits of this long linear corridor includes recreation and health. However, many studies have shown that trails build community spirit, increase local business opportunities and jobs while positively impacting local and state tax bases. However, there are other key benefits that are being over looked. There are both environmental and economic returns on investment through trails including savings on fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emission reductions. Property values along trails increases as much as 9%. Crime is decreased as more people are spending more time outdoors. A diversity of jobs are created and sustained such as technical engineering when trails are designed; construction when trails are built and supply chains of materials that go into each trail. Trails bring tourist to communities. An estimated 208.1 million visitors traveled to and/or within Pennsylvania in 2018 spending $44.8 billion. It’s not hard to see that rails make good business sense. . . . . . #hiking #hikingadventures #clearfieldcounty #westernpa #pennsylvania #pa #snow #snowhike #snowhiking #outdoors #headwatercharitabletrust #hwct #fishing #pennsylvaniaisbeautiful #pennsylvania_wild #hikingwithdogs #hikingtrails #nature #grants #freshwater #water #savetheearth #reducereuserecycle #rivers #creek #DEP #donate #railtrails

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. - Albert Einstein Today is World Wildlife Day, which is celebrated on the third of March every year in order to mark the signing of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora. There are several species of critically endangered animals all around the world, including Black Rhinos, orangutans, and several species of elephant. These species and countless others are threatened by extinction from a variety of directions. Any extinction of a wildlife species can have vast implications on food chains, ecosystems, and the balance of nature. Humans have a duty to protect such species, partially because we have the means to do so and partially because many extinctions have been caused by our negative actions. You can be a part of celebrating this day by sharing interesting wildlife facts with others in order to help raise awareness. You can also become actively involved with local organizations and projects designed to improve habitat for wildlife. . . . . . . #hiking #hikingadventures #clearfieldcounty #westernpa #pennsylvania #pa #snow #snowhike #snowhiking #outdoors #headwatercharitabletrust #hwct #fishing #pennsylvaniaisbeautiful #pennsylvania_wild #hikingwithdogs #hikingtrails #nature #grants #freshwater #water #savetheearth #reducereuserecycle #rivers #creek #DEP #donate #motivation

It is ‘National Random Acts of Kindness Day’. The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation is an internationally recognized non-profit organization founded upon the powerful belief in kindness and dedicated to providing resources and tools that encourage acts of kindness. This can be kindness to yourself, kindness to others, kindness to environment, etc. Some random things you can do to help are; * Drop off a load of groceries at the local food pantry. * Pay for the coffee or meal of the person in front or back of you in line. * Reach out to someone you haven’t spoken to in awhile. * Throw away the garbage you see on the floor at your workplace or local park/trails, etc. What did you do today that can be considered a random act of kindness? . . . . #hiking #hikingadventures #clearfieldcounty #westernpa #pennsylvania #pa #snow #snowhike #snowhiking #outdoors #headwatercharitabletrust #hwct #fishing #pennsylvaniaisbeautiful #pennsylvania_wild #hikingwithdogs #hikingtrails #nature #grants #freshwater #water #savetheearth #reducereuserecycle #rivers #creek #DEP #donate #motivation

Today is National Get Up Day. That may seem like a very vague statement, and it is vague on purpose. This day can mean whatever you what it to, just do something meaningful with your day. Today offers an opportunity to share inspiring stories of perseverance. Today reminds us to pick ourselves up when we’ve fallen and give it another go, whatever it might be. This past year has been a hardship for everyone, but today do something that will remind you that life keeps going! Share your story with us if you would like!! . . . . . . #hiking #hikingadventures #clearfieldcounty #westernpa #pennsylvania #pa #snow #snowhike #snowhiking #outdoors #headwatercharitabletrust #hwct #fishing #pennsylvaniaisbeautiful #pennsylvania_wild #hikingwithdogs #hikingtrails #nature #grants #freshwater #water #savetheearth #reducereuserecycle #rivers #creek #DEP #donate #motivation

Today, January 18th, is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Martin Luther King Jr. was a very well-rounded man. As a visionary, King talked about many issues that touched on justice and spoke against the separation of moral judgement from technological advancements. King’s legacy gave rise to the environmental justice movement, which seeks to ensure the right to a clean and healthy environment for all people. He also often framed issues in the universal terminology of the natural world. Our dear Ex-Senator Harris Wofford, who sadly passed away a couple years ago, actually helped this day become a national holiday. He co-authored the bill creating the King holiday and service act. If you have the day off today, just remember why. Remember if it for the fight of justice and make this day count. Today is about helping even if that means picking up a piece of trash on the side of a trail while on a hike. Every day, we should be keeping in mind equal rights, including those to a clean environment. . . . . . . #hiking #hikingadventures #clearfieldcounty #westernpa #pennsylvania #pa #snow #snowhiking #outdoors #headwatercharitabletrust #hwct #fishing #pennsylvaniaisbeautiful #pennsylvania_wild #hikingwithdogs #hikingtrails #nature #grants #freshwater #water #savetheearth #reducereuserecycle #rivers #creek #DEP #donate #martinlutherking #martinlutherkingjr #mlk #mlkday

It is our pleasure to announce that Headwaters Charitable Trust has been awarded a grant for the amount of $251,400 on behalf of the Toby Creek Watershed Association from the DEP Growing Greener Grant. We applied for this grant to help fund the operational support for the fish nursery and AMD treatment system run by the Toby Creek Watershed Association. This facility has helped reduce the impacts of abandoned mine drainage within the watershed and has improved the stream water quality. Keep an eye out for our blog later today elaborating on the project more! . . . . . . #hiking #hikingadventures #clearfieldcounty #westernpa #pennsylvania #pa #snow #snowhike #snowhiking #outdoors #headwatercharitabletrust #hwct #fishing #pennsylvaniaisbeautiful #pennsylvania_wild #hikingwithdogs #hikingtrails #nature #grants #freshwater #water #savetheearth #reducereuserecycle #rivers #creek #DEP #donate
