Volunteer for the 51st Annual Wissahickon Creek Clean Up on Saturday, April 24. This is the perfect outdoor event to show your support and love for a clean Wissahickon watershed, while keeping safely physically distant from others.
The Wissahickon Creek is 22 miles long, stretching from Montgomery County to the Schuylkill River – and we work closely with our friends and partners at Friends of the Wissahickon to protect the entirety of the Wissahickon Watershed.
Teams explore the Wissahickon Watershed in friendly competition to identify as many species as possible during this fundraiser, collecting pledges for each species to help support our conservation efforts.
Philadelphia and its adjacent counties (including Montgomery!) will compete against other cities in the world to see who can find the most species in their regions. Download the iNaturalist app on your phone and document the species present on Wissahickon Trails properties and help Philadelphia come out on top!
Learn the art and history of early American blacksmithing, and see the smithy forge tools from scrap iron right in front of you.

This is a unique hike for the serious hiker: an amazing loop-hike connecting various preserved lands and taking you from the creek through woods, fields and farm land. We will go through the Camp Woods, Armentrout Preserve, Briar Hill Preserve, Prophecy Creek Park, Willow Lake Farm, and the Green Ribbon Trail.
Learn the how and why behind catching and banding wild birds, and what gathering information about their populations can tell us.
