School Groups

Part of our mission is sharing the joy and importance of tending to our public lands with the next generation of park stewards. Volunteering as a school group provides a wonderful outdoor experience for students – they learn about the history and necessity of Wissahickon Valley Park, get their hands dirty while helping maintain it, and walk away with the pride of knowing that they made a positive difference.

In addition to taking part in our public Volunteer Service Days, we are happy to plan a private event for you and your students. Start/end times and projects can be flexible, based on the group. For any schools that are interested in scheduling a service day, and are not a School District of Philadelphia School, we ask a donation of $15 per student in order to put a project together for you. Transportation is not provided by FOW. Contact Amelia Marren, Volunteer Program Coordinator at for more information.

Please fill out the Corporate and School Inquiry Form here and a staff member will get back to you shortly.
