EAC Member to be Recognized by TTF Watershed Partnership

Posted on Tuesday October 12, 2021
John Raisch will be given the Friend Award at the Watershed Milestones event October 20.
From the Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed Partnership's release about their Milestones Award Winners:

John is a big believer in the importance of trails and the benefits of being active in nature. His passion follows him wherever he goes. He serves on the Cheltenham Environmental Advisory Council, chairing the Mobility and Healthy Living subcommittee. He also leads walks and kids’ bike rides along the Tookany Creek trail in his spare time. This past year, he was instrumental to the success of the Tookany Creek Trail Feasibility Study by encouraging other watershed residents to share their ideas for future trail plans. He has done incredible work expanding the accessibility of trails for biking and walking in Montgomery County. John was key to making our Block Parties a success this summer by lending us a supply of bikes so that Tacony Creek Park neighbors could participate in bike rides along the trail. In addition to being a trail advocate, he’s an environmental role model. John and his family have  replaced most of their lawn with native plants, a burgeoning meadow, and a vegetable garden!

We're grateful to have John bring his passion for trails and environmental issues to serve the community through participation on the EAC and in other community groups and initiatives.  Thank you, John, for all of your hard work!
