Dear Friends,
Join me in welcoming two new members to our leadership: Elizabeth Rosario and Ciara Williams.

Elizabeth will serve on our Board of Directors and Ciara will serve on our Board of Advisors. Elizabeth has participated in our Tacony Creek Park Block Parties for many years, sharing resources from the Health Promotion Council , where she serves as Outreach and Referral Coordinator.

We are so pleased that Ciara will represent the Philadelphia Office of Sustainability , a long time TTF supporter. Ciara contacted us to learn more about our BioBlitz this past September.

At our recent meeting, Board members enjoyed the crumpled paper watershed game, and as you can tell, it was a big hit! Interested in learning how you can be part of our work? Call me at 215-744-1853!
Here's to a productive, peaceful 2019,
Thanks!  #TTFDreamVan is a reality!
Thanks to the generosity of 150 donors,
we reached our goal to fund our Dream Van!
We're starting 2019 with our new wheels. Now, we'll be able to carry our tools, trees, Creekmobile, and people
across our watershed with ease.
Help us name our new van. Please vote below!
Great Blue Sharon
