By Kris Soffa

    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.

Stoneleigh: A Natural Garden, @stoneleighnaturalgarden one of our neighboring gardens in @americasgardencapital, needs our help. The Lower Merion School District informed @natlands, the garden’s owners, last month that it is considering a proposal to seize the garden to build a new school or playing fields. We are surprised and dismayed this could happen after a multi-year, multi-million-dollar renovation to bring more open space to our region. The donation of the John and Chara Haas property, an extraordinary act of generosity, had a singular purpose: to open Stoneleigh up to the general public, so that everyone could enjoy this national and natural treasure free of charge. Gardens like @morrisarboretum and Stoneleigh play an important role in our communities, and offer more than just beauty and respite. In addition to supporting 1,500 jobs, a new study shows that our region’s public gardens collectively generate substantial economic benefits—an estimated $256 million a year. As a fellow public garden, we stand with Stoneleigh and support the efforts being made to keep the garden open. Consider signing the petition to #SaveStoneleigh here: http://bit.ly/2KIPk4C #americasgardencapital

The Origins of Morris Arboretum & The Mansion From Which It Bloomed by Joyce Munro for Hidden City Philadelphia http://bit.ly/2yQFDjx

    The Origins of Morris Arboretum & The Mansion From Which It Bloomed
    On the eve of the Great Depression a man and a woman got into a heated discussion in Philadelphia. No one was close enough to overhear, but from all indications they were arguing about a piece of property. The man, Fiske Kimball, was the impresario of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and a zealous architectural historian.

    Police are still investigating the theft of more than $20,000 in electronic equipment that was stolen from the Jenks Academy of Art and Sciences in Chestnut Hill earlier this month.
