The Friends of the Wissahickon (FOW) will host a public meeting to discuss progress to date on the Sustainable Trails Initiative (STI), upcoming STI projects, and new park signage for Wissahickon Valley Park on Thursday, December 6, 2012, at 6 p.m. at Founders Hall, New Covenant Campus. A representative from Philadelphia Parks and Recreation will be present.
The Sustainable Trails Initiative is a multi-year project to make the 50 miles of National Recreation Trails in the Wissahickon a physically and socially sustainable system that works for all park users. This project is being executed in partnership with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation.
Upcoming work includes projects at the Andorra Natural Area and the Wissahickon Environmental Center, and includes a signage plan that has been in development for approximately five years and is part of STI. This signage project is the first comprehensive plan for a new park-wide signage system that will orient park users during their visits to the Wissahickon and help them deal with potential safety and health emergencies on the trails.
New Covenant Campus is located at 7500 Germantown Avenue. Those wishing to attend the meeting should register with FOW by contacting Outreach Coordinator Sarah Marley firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-247-0417 ext. 109.
