Bartram?s Garden Boat Tour with Young Involved Philadelphia (YIP)

We have organized a very unique opportunity for you to meet and mingle with Young Involved Philadelphia (YIP) – riverside!

Philadelphia Young Nonprofit Leaders and YIP invite you to join us for a fabulous summer cruise on the Schuylkill River:

6:30-8:00 p.m. (boat departs at 7:00 p.m.; please arrive promptly at 6:30 p.m.)
$20 per person
Contact Keri Salerno at with any questions about this event.

The boat tour is operated by Bartram’s Garden in Southwest Philadelphia, the site of the historic home and garden of the Bartrams, America’s pioneering family of naturalists, botanists and explorers. We’ll board the River Loop for a scenic, hour-long cruise up the river through Center City to the Waterworks and return to Bartram’s Garden. Along the route, Executive Director Bill LeFevre will educate us about the history of the river and development along its banks. There will be ample opportunity for networking with YIP on the river and on land after the cruise (location TBD).

Call 215-729-5281 extension 100 — please mention that you are with PYNL & YIP!

Bartram’s Garden accepts Mastercard or Visa.
Space is limited and we expect tickets to sell out quickly, so call today!

Young Involved Philadelphia (YIP) is a nonprofit, grassroots organization that aims to increase civic engagement among young Philadelphians and to facilitate reforms that help to create a better Philadelphia. YIP achieves these goals via education about civic affairs, social events and outings, and advocacy around key issues facing the city. While YIP?s primary mission is to engage young adults, it brings together the young and young-at-heart to work together for a brighter future for Philadelphia.

All cruises depart from the meadow at Bartram’s Garden. Plenty of free parking is available. Bartram’s Garden is accessible by public transportation. Take the No.36 subway-surface trolley originating at City Hall to 54th Street and Lindbergh Blvd. Cross the railroad bridge and the entrance to the garden is on the left.
