Walking the Edge Morning Send-off
February 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Enjoy breakfast and beverages at the Schuylkill Center as we send off walkers on a ~10-mile journey along Philadelphia’s perimeter from the Center towards St. Joseph’s University. As part of Walking the Edge curator JJ Tiziou’s Walk Around Philadelphia project, this experience invites the public to walk along the city’s edge and reflect on the intertwining relationships between pristine natural spaces and the rest of the city’s urban/industrial landscapes.
Please note: You do not have to attend the walk to participate in the morning send-off.
Register here to participate in the walk, and register on this page to participate in the morning send-off.
Also note: there are “off-ramp” options for participants unable to walk the full ~10 mile segment, but the first ~4 miles (~2hrs) will be on routes where public transit or rideshare pickup are not accessible. Please plan accordingly. (You can also simply accompany the walkers a short distance and then turn back.)
Starting at 9:30am, we will offer shuttles from the nearest public transportation stops to the Center for participants of the walk. This event is free and open to the public.
