WICA Members have been working on a grant application for funds from the Philadelphia Horticultural Society (PHS). Two possible projects were submitted and one was selected as a finalist for the grant. The finalist is for a project to clean up the hillside at the bottom of Ridge between Dekeâ€™s BBQ and the Bridge/Bike Race Mural.
The application includes plans to clean the area, expose the Wissahickon Schist outcroppings, and remove invasive plant species and plant native species. We are very proud to be selected as a finalist and appreciative of the hard work that neighbors have put into the application. The final application will be submitted by Monday, April 6th.
Please attend our upcoming general membership meeting on Wednesday, April 8th at 7pm in the Board Room of Northern Childrenâ€™s Services for further details.
