The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society is seeking volunteers for the 9th annual Fall for Your Park cleanup event on Saturday, Oct. 13, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Cobbs Creek Park and Laura Sims Skatehouse (nearby), as well as the Cobbs Creek Recreation Center in West Philadelphia.
More than 300 volunteers from 80 neighborhood park groups will meet to plant trees, garden, paint, restore woodland and more. Volunteers will receive free T-shirts and lunch, while supplies last. Have a hand in the transformation that will occur as neighborhood residents and park advocates from across the city work to improve the site for all to enjoy. For more information, call (215) 988-1611 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Registration will begin at 8 a.m. at the Laura Sims Skatehouse, 63rd & Walnut streets. Fall for Your Park is sponsored by Philadelphia Green’s Parks Revitalization Project, the Philadelphia Department of Recreation, Fairmount Park and the Neighborhood Transformation Initiative, with support from the William Penn Foundation, Aveeno, the American Parks Network and the Philadelphia Committee of the Garden Club of America.
