Established in 2015, BioPhilly's mission is to promote the important link between human health, and the meaningful daily experience of wild and bio-diverse nature in the city.

We engage with our fellow citizens towards an urban habitat tapestry from the Delaware River to the Schuylkill River. 

BioPhilly is a member of the Biophilic Cities Network. We join with a growing number of Biophilic Partner cities from Washington DC to Singapore.
