Fall “Green-up” Day
The Franklin Park Environmental Advisory Council annually leads a “Green-up” Day to help conserve and restore habitat in Franklin Park’s greenspaces (protected areas of undeveloped landscape). Efforts typically include invasive species removal, tree plantings, and trail maintenance/improvements.
2024 – TBD
2023 – Acorn Park We cleaned up a section off the trail in the central portion of Acorn Park where many sapling and mature hardwood trees were being attacked by invasive species like oriental bittersweet and garlic mustard. Acorn Park is home to the headwaters of Little Sewickley Creek and has remained mostly untouched greenspace for over 100 years.
