  • Serve the Preserve

    Serve the Preserve will be a continuation of the ongoing restoration project at Four Mills Reserve to enhance biodiversity.  With the help of volunteers, WVWA will continue to remove unwanted invasive species and replant with plant communities that were historically part of the Wissahickon Creek floodplain.  Wear work clothes, sturdy shoes for digging and bring a shovel if you have one. WVWA will provide tools, gloves and refreshments.  No experience necessary, we will teach proper planting techniques and the benefits of native plants.

    Race starts at 9:00 a.m.

    Challenge yourself on the beautiful Green Ribbon Trail. This 5-mile race is ideal for both experienced and new trail runners. Runners will start at Parkside Place Park and follow the Green Ribbon Trail downstream and finish back at the Park’s pavilion for the award ceremony and brunch.
