Friends of the Wissahickon Hosts Love Your Park Fall Service Day

to Keep Wissahickon Valley Park Clean & Green – 11/12

Friends of the Wissahickon (FOW) seeks volunteers to join the annual Love Your Park Fall Service Day for planting this Saturday, November 12, from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. FOW will be planting about 100 trees and shrubs in the wooded ravine at Houston Meadow. This planting adds to one FOW conducted at the site last year with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation to fill in a canopy gap and help with erosion control.

No experience is needed. FOW provides gloves, tools and instruction. Volunteer service Days are great ways to help FOW take care of the Wissahickon Valley Park. Wear sturdy footwear and long pants, and bring a water bottle. Detailed information and the specific meeting location will be sent by email the day before the event.

Volunteers meet at the Houston Playground (900 Grakyn Lane). Register here.
