  • Tree ID Walk

    10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
    Join Arborist Ken LeRoy on a tree-themed exploration of Armentrout Preserve and Camp Woods.  Located in Whitpain Township, the Armentrout Preserve loop trail connects with the Camp Woods trail.  We’ll visit the quiet woods of Beech, Tulip-poplar, and Hickory that are bordered by open fields.  We will observe the interesting dynamic of old field succession in various stages which are assisted by the wind and birds.

     
  • Walk the Wissahickon

    Walk begins at 8:00 a.m.
    Take a guided walk on the 21-mile Green Ribbon Trail and support WVWA's mission of engaging diverse communities of people to protect, steward and enjoy the land and waterways of the Wissahickon Valley. Start in North Wales and follow the Trail along Wissahickon Creek for the either 5, 8,13 or all 21 miles. All of the walks are guided and you are bussed back to the starting point. 

  • Serve the Preserve

    9:00 a.m.
    Volunteers will help build and install 1-2 deer exclosures around restoration areas to help WVWA test the effectiveness of deer protection methods, which provide native species a chance to grow without pressure from deer browsing. The work will involve clearing the chosen sites of invasive plants and fallen limbs to prep the area, followed by fence installation (including setting posts, attaching netting, and building and incorporating access gates).   

  • Craft Beer by the Creek

    1:00 - 4:00 p.m.
