Reaching Out to Little Friends

Philadelphia has one of the greatest park systems in the U.S., and yet many of our residents are either unaware of or disconnected from our public green spaces. In response to this problem, FOW is launching a pilot program, Little Friends of the Wissahickon, to introduce Philadelphia’s public school kindergartners and first graders to Wissahickon Valley Park and inspire them to explore and experience the wilderness in their own city.

    The lack of rain in recent weeks and lingering summer warmth are likely to diminish the fall color show. But even with a reduced display, the pageantry of this finale forms one of the sweetest garden moments of the year. Some of your garden plants are going to present magical progressions of color whether you planned for them or not.
