We asked the TTF staff about their favorite moments of 2018 and their resolutions for 2019. Enjoy! Be Inspired! Join Us!
My favorite moment of 2018 was during our Tacony Creek Park movie night. It was a beautiful night and dozens of families were out watching Wall-E on the grass. The entire time a small crowd of kids were continuously playing at the CreekMobile, fishing out trash and learning about the fish and wildlife within the lit up creek diorama. What a fun night!
My 2019 resolution is to collect more terrific Tacony Creek Park stories for our growing Oral History collection! We really want to hear stories from the full spectrum of park neighbors, their favorite memories, how the park has changed, and their dreams for the park’s future.
My 2019 New Year’s Resolution is to keep forming new connections with organizations in our watershed and to build more relationships with community members, informing them of Tacony Creek Park, and all of the programs that we offer. May we all continue to grow together with intentional care, passion, open-minds, listening ears and patience!
My favorite moment with TTF this year has been planning events and being able to see the outcome when the time comes. It means a lot to me personally to be a part of bringing these types of changes to the community and impacting it in a positive way, but most importantly showing the youth that you can be the change you want to see in your life.
My 2019 resolution will be to keep growing and learning to the best of my abilities.
My resolution for 2019 is to spend more time listening…to the sound of water in our creeks and the Delaware River…and to the voices of our volunteers, constituents, and stakeholders.
My favorite moment of 2018 was hosting our annual Watershed Milestones Award Ceremony & Reception. It’s always so inspiring to hear stories about the stewards and educators within the TTF Watershed. Plus, it’s a great celebration to boot!
My resolution for 2019 is to continue to grow and improve our internship program.
My favorite moment of 2018 was finding an American eel in the Jenkintown Creek while I was out performing maintenance work at our rain garden in Ethel Jordan Park. It was really exciting to see this creature so far upstream along with a host of other wildlife surrounding the creek.
In 2019, I want to spend more time enjoying the beauty of our upstream communities, as well as sharing that beauty with everyone else!
