Philly’s parks have seen record usage over the last year and an increase in litter. To lend a hand and show our parks some love this summer, volunteers are invited to join us for weekly cleanups in Fairmount Park.
The weekly volunteer events will include cleanups on Tuesday evenings from 5:30pm-7pm, Wednesday Weeding mornings from 9:30am-11:30am in various locations throughout Fairmount Park, including Belmont Plateau, the Trolley Trail, and Concourse Lake, to name a few. There will also be occasional Saturday volunteer opportunities, as well.
The volunteer events will include trash removal, weeding, and invasive vines removal. No prior experience is required. Gloves and trash bags will be provided, but if you have your own gloves you regularly use, please bring them with you!
If you can’t make it out to our weekly cleanups, you can also Love Your Park Solo! This solo cleanup program will return this summer, including free cleanup kits. Stay tuned for more information!
