This has ended. If you attended, let the organizer know by recording your Impact!


Join us for a volunteer project to clean up and begin restoring a the Wynnefield Trail - a hidden path near Belmont Plateau! The Wynnefield Trail starts at the intersection of Wynnefield & Belmont, and runs through the patch of woods known as the Montgomery Wetland to Belmont Mansion Drive, at the base of Belmont Plateau. This trail will provide easy and safe access to Belmont Plateau and Fairmount Park for Wynnefield residents, who currently have to cross dangerous intersections to access to the park on foot or bike. Help us celebrate and bring attention to this forgotten amenity!
