The Wissahickon Valley needs your help if it is to remain a place of wildness and beauty for generations to come. Each year, hundreds of volunteers, including individuals, families, groups, organizations and schools, invest thousands of hours of sweat equity in the Park.
Under the direction of FOW's Volunteer Coordinator and crew leaders, and in partnership with the Philadelphia Department of Parks and Recreation, these volunteers rebuild trails; plant trees; remove vines; eliminate exotic invasive plants and replace them with native species; clean up trash and debris; remove graffiti; control erosion; and repair structures.
Volunteers are needed for field work at our Saturday volunteer days and weekdays. Volunteers interested in helping restore structures, repair stone work and rebuild trails are needed on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
No specific skills are needed. Just bring your enthusiasm and interest and the FOW will provide you with leadership, tools and instruction.
