National Public Lands Service Day
September 28 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Meet at Thomas Mansion (6245 Wissahickon Avenue Philadelphia, PA 19144)
Come out to celebrate National Public Lands Day with us! Each year, hundreds of thousands of volunteers come together across the United States on the fourth Saturday in September to assist with various projects designed to restore and enhance public parks, forests, waterways and more. This year, we will be celebrating with a planting of native trees and shrubs at Thomas Mansion, a historic property built in 1869. The property, which once boasted beautifully landscaped gardens and a green house, needs lots of regular maintenance to keep from becoming overgrown.
Workdays will be cancelled in the event of heavy rain or snow, thunder and lightning, high winds, etc. Visit FOW’s Facebook page or the Upcoming Work Days page for updates. If the workday is cancelled it will be posted by 8 am.
For this event, we are partnering with
