    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.
