    Join Trail Steward Harm Scherpbier on a 2-mile exploration of the Green Ribbon Trail from Ambler Borough. This hike will show you 3 ways to connect from Ambler into the Green Ribbon trail. We’ll begin and end at Forest and Main, staying for a drink after the hike!

  • Birdathon & International Migratory Bird Day

    Just like New Jersey’s famous World Series of Birding, teams explore the Wissahickon Watershed to identify as many species as possible during this two-day fundraiser, collecting pledges for each species to help support WVWA’s conservation efforts. This year’s Birdathon also takes place on International Migratory Bird Day (IMBD), an annual, global event that celebrates the beauty and importance of migratory birds, informs the public about their amazing migration routes and their conservation.
