Get dirty in West Philly

I wanted to share this note from the Morris Park Restoration Association. These guys are amazing citizens. They've been devoting their weekends to the park for a few years now, and always put a call out for volunteers. They prove that you can't get really green unless you get dirty:

The MPRA is gearing up for another great season of volunteer work out in Morris Park. We were very happy to receive a grant from the William Penn Foundation, through the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society to do some big planting projects this year! And we're working on plans for other great work and a few events in the coming months as well! Make sure to keep in touch - we'd love to have as many people participate as possible!

However, in order to make these events work out well, we need to do some more preparatory invasive removal. So meet us this Saturday, at 10am, at the guardhouse at 66th and Sherwood. We'll gather our tools together then head up along the upper trail (parallel to 66th Street). If you can't meet up with us right at 10, just call 267-312-9127 to find out where we're working. It should be another weekend of beautiful weather, so come on out and enjoy it!! We hope to see you in the Park again this Saturday!!
