    National Moth Week 2018- July 21-28; A global celebration of moths and biodiversity - Friends of Wissahickon
    By Kris Soffa While you're sleeping each night, the Wissahickon Valley Park is brimming with activity, as nocturnal creatures large and small perform their nightly rituals. Deer and other mammals set out to complete their appointed rounds crossing from parkland to neighboring yards and back. Birds and bats take flight.

Park Safety Alert

Around 9:15 last night, police received a report of an altercation with shots fired near Livezey Lane. Police quickly responded and investigated the area for shooters and bystanders, and a police helicopter also searched the scene. Once on the scene police were unable to confirm that shots were fired and most of the people visiting the area exited the park.  Reports are that one arrest was made after police found a gun in a discarded backpack.

What do you think about this article? Do you think the YMCA helps you step away from your electronic devices and into a social conversation? https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/12/well/live/having-friends-is-good-for-you.html

    Social Interaction Is Critical for Mental and Physical Health
    Hurray for the HotBlack Coffee cafe in Toronto for declining to offer Wi-Fi to its customers. There are other such cafes, to be sure, including seven of the eight New York City locations of Café Grumpy. But it's HotBlack's reason for the electronic blackout that is cause for hosannas.

The Park and Your Health: A Conversation with Matthew Lorei, M.D., Chestnut Hill Hospital

Dr. Lorei has had a long-term relationship with Wissahickon Valley Park. An FOW member, he discovered the Wissahickon soon after moving to Philadelphia for medical school. He and his then girlfriend/now wife would go for a run every Sunday on Forbidden Drive. Years later, that’s where his children learned to ride their bikes. Whenever he can, he loves to go trail running (the Yellow Trail is a favorite) with his dog. Dr. Lorei’s interest in orthopaedics started in fifth grade when he fractured his arm playing football. Today, he is Chief of the Division of Orthopaedic Surgery at Chestnut Hill Hospital, Chief of the Joint Replacement Service at Temple Hospital, and Associate Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at Temple University School of Medicine. He was recently named a Top Doctor by Philadelphia Magazine.
