Calling All Tree Huggers: Help fill in the gaps in University City's Tree Canopy!

Our neighborhood is lucky to have a beautiful tree canopy, but that doesn't mean that there aren't still gaps on blocks that would benefit from additional trees. UC Green is looking for volunteers to help identify locations where additional trees are needed. The deadline for getting these locations identified and added to UC Green's spring tree planting is December 1st, 2013, so we only have a few weeks to act!  For more information and to participate, contact UC Green at 215 573-4684.

And, if they grow at The Porch, we’re sure they can grow in your garden too. Have you taken a seat at The Porch recently and noticed a plant you haven’t seen before? Then wondered what it was called? These questions come up often, so UCD decided to add plant identification signage at The Porch.

Baltimore Crossing Unveiled

The five-way intersection of 48th St., Baltimore Ave. and Florence Ave. has long been a confusing and potentially dangerous crossing for pedestrians and bicyclists. Walkers confronted a massive expanse of asphalt and fast moving vehicles along with a confusing pattern of crosswalks that did not permit a direct crossing along the busy Baltimore Ave. commercial corridor, forcing many to play a game of “frogger” with speeding cars and trucks.
