JimmyP Eagle Project

Hey everyone!

  • Are you looking for service hours? 
  • Do you want to help your community? 
  • Would you like to be apart of something that is great and amazing? 
  • Do you want to have fun while giving back?

Then come to Jimmy P's Eagle Scout Project this Saturday, September 22nd from 9am to 4pm!


Who does this help?...



The Wissahickon Watershed will be the beneficiary. The area is in need of a new trail, since the owners of the private property would like to build a fence. The trail that exists needs to be relocated in order to maintain the Green Ribbon Trail. The area needs cleaning, and the trail will need blazes, signs, mile marker, etc.


What will you do?...

  • Help remove a trail that is on private property
  • Create an entirely new part of the Green Ribbon Trail  
  • Clean the area of trash and debris around the trail and the road
  • Help remove non-native plant species 
  • Build walk ways
  • Move signs
  • Create trail blazes
  • And much much more...

What should you bring?...

  • Work gloves
  • Full cold water bottle  (jugs for refilling will be available)

What should you wear?...

  • Hat
  • Sunscreen (so far weather forecast is 73 degrees mostly sunny)
  • Insect repellant 
  • Clothes to get dirty in (e.g. probably not your uniform since you will be working in the dirt and cleaning)


Lunch and drinks will be provided 

Even though we will begin at 9am if you can make it at any point during the day it would be much appreciated.   If we have a good turnout we should be done by early afternoon; so please come and help.
