Events In The Watershed

Green Ribbon Gala

We invite you to join us for a special event with Wissahickon Trails 


Green Ribbon Gala To-Go 

Saturday, October 10, 2020 - Gala To-Go box pick-up 

Sunday, October 11, 2020 - Gala To-Go virtual program 

Registration is closed. Contact Lisa Hansell with any questions.

This year’s Green Ribbon Gala To-Go will bring you some of the best parts of this beloved annual event while still being mindful of your health and safety.


As the world around us shut down earlier this year, nature marched ahead and provided us with exactly what we needed. More people discovered the value of having accessible open space in our community as they enjoyed time on a trail. Our mission and work allows us to provide access to our trails and preserves, bringing respite and hope during challenging times. Your support of the Green Ribbon Gala To-Go will ensure these spaces are cared for and improved so that all residents of our watershed can enjoy our natural treasures.
