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.
