Help us to improve the health and biodiversity of our forest while getting to know the Center’s property, connecting with nature, and making new friends. On workdays, volunteers will remove invasive plants, plant native species, and help to improve our trails.
We recommend long pants, sturdy boots, and a sense of fellowship. No experience necessary—we provide gloves, tools, instruction, and snacks. Please bring your own water bottle.
Give back to Tacony Creek Park this MLK Day of Service! Help us tidy up our beautiful park and then join us inside Olney Christian School for some pizza and watershed games. Dress warmly and bring a friend!
