Gene Bishop Memorial Project
In memory of long-time Wissahickon supporter Gene Bishop, this ecological restoration project included removal of invasive species and planting a mix of canopy and understory trees that are native to the Wissahickon. The site for the restoration is along a trail near Monastery Stables in Mt. Airy. Volunteers working in ten-person crews removed invasive exotic plants and planted 40 native trees and shrubs representing 12 species, including gray birch, bigtooth aspen, and American elderberry.
