Clean Air Council, Feet First Philly, and several other local organizations held a fun day of activities along Cobbs Creek Trail as part of Celebrate Trails Day on April 23. The day’s events kicked off with our fantastic partners WeWalk and GirlTrek hosting a walk along the Cobbs Creek Park trails. 

The Cobbs Creek Community Environmental Center headquartered the celebration with half a dozen exhibitors offering resources and educational materials including trail maps, sustainable commuting guides, a guide to local green stormwater infrastructure, and upcoming event schedules. John Heinz Wildlife Refuge also hosted a fishing casting lesson and the Boy Scouts gave a lesson on fire building that included roasting some delicious s’mores. 

At the middle and southern ends of the trail, stewardship efforts were in full swing with UC Green volunteers planting trees adjacent to the trail, and Cobbs Creek Ambassadors and Darby Creek Valley Association stewards conducting clean ups at Mt. Moriah Cemetery and Blue Bell Inn. 

After the clean ups, visitors joined an afternoon cemetery tour at Mt. Moriah, yoga in Haddington Woods located along the northern end of the trail, and horseback riding and free water ice giveaways at the Environmental Center.

Feet First Philly would like to thank all the partners who came together to make Celebrate Trails Day at Cobbs Creek a huge success.
