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 firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
