36th Darby Creek Watershed Cleanup is April 18, 2020 


Each Spring since 1984 the Darby Creek Valley Association hosts a watershed-wide clean up event focusing on removing trash, tires, and other debris from regional waterways. During this event, volunteers work together to clean up sites located throughout the watershed.

An incredible amount of trash makes its way into our local waterways each year. Last year DCVA had 392 volunteers and collected 5.79 tons of debris in our dumpsters and 6680 pounds in trash bags. Every year we try to expand our reach and add new sites. We are projected to have 38 sites within all the streams and tributaries of the Darby Creek/Cobbs Creek Watershed within Delaware County, Philadelphia County, and Montgomery County including approximately 126 linear miles of streams and 10 miles of roadsides.   

Help us as we work to protect and preserve our local stream, creeks by sponsoring or donating to the 2019 Stream Clean-up.

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.
