Volunteers in Cobbs Creek Park

By Visit for all events! (other events)

Saturday, December 14 2019 10:00 AM 12:00 PM EDT

Join Philadelphia Parks & Recreation and the Fairmount Park Conservancy for a forest restoration project Cobbs Creek Park!

Cobbs Creek Park is an 800-acre greenway of forested valleys, wetlands, and trails. It's also the site of a major forest restoration project, aimed at improving Philly's resilience to ever warmer and wetter seasons. Join us to learn more and to help prepare our forests for this changing climate! We'll spend the morning clearing invasives, caring for young trees, and working to preserve Philly's forests. 

Projects are led by Philadelphia Parks & Recreation and Fairmount Park Conservancy staff. All tools and materials are provided- including work gloves and snacks!

Plan to wear sturdy, closed toed shoes, and clothes you won't mind getting dirty. Make sure to pack yourself plenty of water! 

This is an outdoor event, so we may need to cancel in the event of heavy rain or snow. Please check your inbox the week-of for confirmations.
