5. Volunteer for A Clean Up
It’s time for Spring cleaning and that mean cleaning the Earth and keeping our parks clean. Every year the Friend of Wissahickon hosts their Annual Creek Clean-Up off of Bell’s Mill road at Wissahickon Creek. This is a high traffic area which sees a lot of trash buildup, so volunteering to help clean it up will make a huge difference! Register to volunteer here.
