The Schuylkill River Trail was recently named the Best Urban Trail in the United States by USA Today — but many trail users still experience problems. Harassment has been a problem on the Schuylkill Banks, and recently, numerous organizations from around the city have decided to do something about it.
A project of Run 2015, the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, City Fit Girls, Town Watch Integrated Services, the Philadelphia Police, Black Men Run, and others (see below), the Schuylkill River Trail Watch was formed, and the group is having a trail watch training on Wednesday, May 25. If you’re at all interested, click here to register. It’s free.
All information is below:
MAY 25, 2016 at 6:30pm at City Hall (the exact room number will be communicated with you via email once you are registered).
Volunteers should be prepared to spend an hour and a half (possibly longer) at this session. Anthony Murphy of Town Watch Integrated Services will be leading the training session. Please come prepared with whatever items you need to make this session beneficial for you (notepads, pencils, tablets, etc), as we will be covering a number of different topics.
Volunteers should arrive NO LATER than 6:30pm, and should sign in with your Eventbrite confirmation email upon entry.
Volunteers should be prepared to submit their availability, as we will schedule trail watches according to the times you give us.
This training is FREE, and upon its completion you will be a part of the Schuylkill River Trail Watch!
