95th Anniversary Super Mega Volunteer Service Day

Help us celebrate 95 years of conservation work

Help Friends of the Wissahickon celebrate 95 years of conservation stewardship! We will be teaming up with our community partners to host volunteer opportunities at 10 different trailheads throughout Wissahickon Valley Park. Together, we’re going to make these entrances to the park more beautiful and welcoming for all who visit! Improvements will include cleaning up trash and recycling, removing invasive plants, and planting native trees and flowers.

Please register to volunteer below by clicking on the + sign next to your preferred work site and following the registration link. And don’t forget to register for the picnic following.  The registration link for the picnic will be sent to you after you complete the volunteer registration.
