This week for Wellness Wednesday we show you a Lat pull over using a dumbbell. This can also be done with a barbell if you don't have any dumbbells to work with. This movement will work your lats, shoulders, triceps, and core. Focus on keeping your back flat, and avoid flaring your ribs when you extend overhead. This is a strength movement, so go slow, and keep the weight under control the whole time. Try adding 3 sets of 10-15 reps to your next workout! Check back again next week for another edition of #wellnesswednesday

What to See in the Wissahickon

By Wendy Willard

    What to See in the Wissahickon - Friends of Wissahickon
    By Wendy Willard American Holly (Ilex opaca) The American holly is an evergreen that bears showy fruit and a truly deer resistant Holly (yeah!), found in moist, well-drained soils, frequently in shaded woods. The trees are densely pyramidal when young, but become more open with age.

As of this post, we are still seeking insurance that can cover all of the requests from the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority (PRA, owners of the property). The PRA has been assisting us in finding insurance that can fulfill their requirements and to have us reopen as soon as possible. As the park remains closed, we need you more than ever. We need you to attend meetings and events, share our Facebook page or email/tweet to community leaders to help us reopen the park. We will update you as we get further news.

This week for wellness Wednesday we show you two different ways to rack a bar for a front squat. Front squats are great for building both leg and core strength, and they allow you to squat with your torso in a more upright position than in a back squat (when performed correctly). This in turn puts less stress on your low back, Remember to keep the bar resting on your shoulders, and keep your elbows high! Check back again next week for another edition of #wellnesswednesday

Director’s Notebook: Strategic Blueprint 2018-2020

What is Wissahickon Valley Park? This is the question we posed at a public meeting in January of this year, part of a public dialogue that helped us determine what is achievable for FOW’s Strategic Blueprint 2018-2020.  Through this meeting and the entire process of developing the Blueprint, we learned that the Wissahickon is not simply a nature preserve, a woodland, a forest, an urban park, or a watershed park. It is all these things and more.

Hello,
My wife and I have been living in the area since April of '17, and have really enjoyed it so far.
We're currently in need of childcare for our 2 year old daughter, and are hoping that someone on here can offer some suggestions.
The barriers we keep finding are that most places are booked for the next year of two.
Most places are out of our budget. The last daycare was charging us $720 a month for 3 full days a week.
We're hoping to keep it around that amount, if somehow possible.
Some things we are open to are nanny shares, in-home childcare, or our child going to someones house (references and background checks, of course).
If you can help out, know someone who can, or a childcare center in the area, please let us know.
Happy New Year!
