Block Parties in Tacony Creek Park!
Dear Friends: | Queridos amigos:

Block Parties in Tacony Creek Park
It's June, time for Block Parties! We have hosted these events in Tacony Creek Park since 2013, when the section of the trail from Roosevelt Boulevard to Juniata Park was completed -- that's nine years!
¡Es junio, tiempo de Block Parties! Hemos organizado estos eventos en Tacony Creek Park desde 2013, cuando se completó la sección del sendero desde Roosevelt Boulevard hasta Juniata Park -- ¡nueve años!

These community gatherings are all about bringing people together to introduce them to their park and each other. We have met thousands (!) of people who have become Park Keepers, shared ideas that have become programs, and created a constituency for this special underinvested green space.
Estas reuniones comunitarias reúnen a las personas para presentarles su parque e introducirse entre ellos. Hemos conocido a miles (!) de personas que se han convertido en Guardianes del Parque, hemos compartido ideas que se han convertido en programas y hemos creado un electorado para este espacio verde especial de poca inversión.

Please join us to make these parties a success. We need your help setting up, greeting attendees and leading activities, and cleaning up. With a few hundred neighbors at each party, we can't do it alone.
Únase a nosotros para que estas fiestas sean un éxito. Necesitamos su ayuda para el montaje, saludar a los participantes, dirigir actividades y limpiar. Con unos cientos de vecinos en cada fiesta, no podemos hacerlo solos.

We provide our enewsletters, flyers, and Tacony Creek Park maps in English and Spanish because we are committed to connecting with all of the communities that call our watershed home. However, we do not yet have the capacity to provide all of our programs in Spanish as well. Programs that provide Spanish interpretation and/or include Spanish speaking staff will be listed in this enewsletter in Spanish and English.

Proveemos nuestros boletines electrónicos, volantes y mapas de Tacony Creek Park en inglés y español porque estamos comprometidos a conectarnos con todas las comunidades que llaman hogar a nuestra cuenca. Sin embargo, todavía no tenemos la capacidad de ofrecer todos nuestros programas en español. Notaremos qué programas brindan interpretación en español y/o incluyen personal que habla español al incluir ***.

See you soon,| Nos vemos pronto,
Block Parties: June 14, 15, 16!
Revival Walk: Your Story in Tacony Creek Park 

Saturday, June 11 from 10am-12pm
Tabor Rd & Olney Ave. Gateway Phila 19120 FREE!

Olney Culture Lab presents Revival Walks in Tacony Creek Park, hosted by Storyteller Mama Carla and featuring special guest artists.

Originally created by dance artist/activist Lela Aisha Jones during the pandemic, the Revival Walks brought healing, solace, and joy to participants, as facilitators lifted up Afro-centric practices in order to rebalance our relationship with the natural world. Participants remove trash along the way as an act of reciprocity to nature.

Saturday, June 18 from 10am-12pm
Abington Friends School
575 Washington Lane, Jenkintown 19046

Under rocks, logs, leaves, live an impressive variety of tiny creatures on which we depend. Look for and examine them closely with magnifiers and microscopes. Use handouts and field guides to identify them. In honor of Father’s Day, you will find out if some of the organisms we find are fathers.

For ages 5 through adult. Environmental educator Judith Gratz explores a different topic on the 3rd Saturday of each month. This series is sponsored with Cheltenham Township.
