Lincoln Drive Clean-Up Spring 2023

Join us for a morning of stewardship!

This event has been rescheduled to Friday, April 7. You can register to attend here

We have very exciting plans for this service day. We will be closing Lincoln Drive (the only main road that runs right next to the creek within Wissahickon Valley Park) from Wissahickon Avenue down to Ridge Avenue for a large-scale litter clean-up! We have two meeting locations for this morning, at both ends of the clean-up area, with both groups working toward each other on Lincoln Drive. Come help us make this often travelled section of the park cleaner! The event will be cancelled in inclement weather.

You must pre-register for a site (see below) and sign the volunteer agreement & release before you are allowed to join the clean-up. Gloves, trash bags, trash grabbers, and instruction will be provided.

Sign up for a meeting location below!
