Invasive Removal Workday

November 3, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Meet at Mt Airy Avenue Trailhead
The Wissahickon is filled with a variety of beautiful plants. Many of them, unfortunately, are not native to this area and can cause a lot of harm. When an exotic species takes up shop in the park, they tend to grow & spread quickly, shading the ground so that nothing else will grow. This Saturday, we’ll be in continuing the work we started this spring near the Mt Airy Avenue Trailhead. We will be removing some of these invasive plants and prepping the site for a planting the following week.
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.
