2017, DCVA 33rd Watershed Clean Up was another successful year. 2017 was our second year at the site in Eastwick, beginning at the northeastern border of the Clearview Landfill and heading up the Cobbs as far as Island Avenue. We had a new crew working at the Bell Tavern on Main Street at the Cobbs Creek Parkway led by the Clean Air Council of Philadelphia. We also clean farther up the Cobbs in the vicinity of the Cobbs Creek Community Environmental Education Center at 63rd and Catharine St. in Philadelphia.There was also a separate cleanup event at the John Heinz Wildlife Refuge, which DCVA partners with, on April 15th, 2017 led by the Refuge Staff and the Friends of John Heinz. They always need to hold their event at a time when the tide is at its lowest level on a Saturday in order to access the stream and marsh banks. We are supported by the Delaware County Solid Waste Authority, Delaware County Maintenance District of Penn DOT, The Delaware County Conservation District, and the City of Philadelphia. We also receive wonderful support from most of our individual municipalities, generous individuals, and our numerous volunteers.
