On Saturday, July 27th YMF Philadelphia teamed up with Friends of Wissahickon to complete a trail restoration project in Wissahickon Park. The volunteers closed a section of erosive trail, redirecting users to a new path. The crew moved rocks and soil from stock areas, cut tread, removed invasive species, built check dams to help prevent erosion during storm events and restored the section of erosive trail to promote vegetation.

This was a highly successful event. All attendees had a great time and had a great workout. The FOW had nothing but compliments for our crew. We hope to continue this on-going partnership with FOW with multiple projects this year. Thanks to everyone who participated!

Below are a few pictures from the event:
