Join us (virtually) to help document the species on our preserves using iNaturalist. A BioBlitz is a community-science effort to record as many species within a designated location and time period as possible. We have designated 5 preserves that we are targeting to collect species information from, so grab your phone or camera and start observing.
Join us for a guided 3-mile loop hike on the Fox Loop trail. This trail combines the beautiful wild meadows of the Gwynedd Preserve with the creekside Green Ribbon Trail, and two stepping stone crossings, into a wonderful and easy loop hike.
Spring is upon us, and with it the return of wood warblers to our area. Small, fast, and various combinations of yellow and black, these birds can be challenging to identify. Join us for specific warbler ID strategies, including their songs.
Join Harm Scherpbier on an exploration of the Green Ribbon Trail from Ambler Borough. Hike along the trail as well as along the Wissahickon Waterfowl Preserve. This hike will show you how to connect from Ambler Township to Lower Gwynedd trails to the Green Ribbon Trail.
When you think of conservation, a smart phone may not be the first thing that comes to mind! However, your phone and the free iNaturalist app can contribute valuable data to Wissahickon Trails conservation efforts.
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.
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!
Join us for a 4 mile walk with your dog and discover the connection between Camp Woods and Armentrout Preserve. Dogs must remain on leashes at all times.
Join us for a virtual presentation with herbalist, Alison Rohde, to learn about some of the spring's best edible plants, how to ID them, and how to sustainably harvest and use them, as well as some fun folklore.
