Martin Luther King Jr. Volunteer Day of Service

January 15 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Meeting at Thomas Mansion (6245 Wissahickon Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19144)
Plan to park in the nearby neighborhoods.

Dr. King once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: what are you doing for others?” By volunteering on this day, we will be giving back to our park, it’s users, the creek, and the plants and animals that rely on it to live. This year, we we be completing a variety of projects in the southern section of the park, from removing invasive vines to cleaning up litter. This will not only make this area of the park more beautiful, but it will keep our watershed healthier for all!

No experience is needed. We provide gloves, tools and instruction – you just need to show up! Volunteer service Days are excellent, easy ways to help us take care of Wissahickon Valley Park. Be sure to wear warm layers, and bring a water bottle with you. Snow or especially frigid temperatures will cancel this event.

Detailed information and the specific meeting location will be sent by email the day before the event. For more information contact Amelia Marren at
