Here's what's going on this weekend in Chestnut Hill and Mt. Airy.
Potluck Supper: The Time for Time time bank will hold a potluck dinner in the Center on the Hill, at the rear of the Presbyterian Church at 8 p.m. on Friday. Come connect to fellow Time4Time time bank members or learn more about the concept. RSVP with what you will bring is requested at firstname.lastname@example.org. Wear a hat to get extra time credits and prizes will be given away for funniest, most imaginative and silliest hat. The monthly potlucks are typically held the second Friday of each month, but were moved this month due to the Jewish holidays.
Cleanup in the Wissahickon: Volunteers are needed to help cleanup the Andorra Natural Area on Saturday starting at 9 a.m. The Friends of the Wissahickon are in need of volunteers to close a final section of unsustainable trail on Saturday, September 21, 2013, at the Andorra Natural Area, home of the popular Wissahickon Environmental Center (Andorra Tree House). Volunteers will break up the compacted soil on the trail, set a series of check dams in the steep areas to reduce stormwater flow, then place organic matter and large branches to disguise the closed area. This is all part of the preparation work needed to plant native vegetation at a later date. Meet at the WEC (300 Northwestern Ave. 19118) at 9 am. Workday ends at 1 pm.Registration is not required but is recommended in order to be notified in case of any changes due to weather. To register, contact FOW Volunteer Coordinator Eric Falk at email@example.com. Workdays are cancelled in the event of heavy rain or snow. Visit FOW's Facebook page or www.fow.org for updates.
Nature Sleuths: Autumn is a wonderful time for children to explore the great outdoors and develop their intellectual curiosity while having fun in nature! Join us for a close look at trees, birds, and other wildlife that call the Morris Arboretum home. Each session will focus on a particular topic of the natural world, delving into how it fits into the Arboretum’s web of life. One week we may use binoculars to find migrating birds, while another week we may follow the colorful progress of the leaves’ changing fall colors; all within the safe confines of the Arboretum’s trails. Then back inside, we will create a take-home art project related to our outdoor adventure. Four Sundays: September 22, 29, October 6, 13 10:30 – 11:30 a.m. Members: $80 Non-members: $100
