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.

Join the Center in the Park Songsters - they have known these benefits for 30+ years! http://www.nextavenue.org/benefits-choir-singing/?utm_content=bufferd15eb&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer

    The Benefits of Choir Singing When You're Older
    "I didn't expect to give them harmony at the first meeting," Palad says. "But by the performance, they were already singing in parts. They're willing to learn. They have that willingness and perseverance." Palad wasn't the only one surprised by the choir. I noticed a lot of people were sitting and standing taller after only a few weeks.

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!
