United By Blue Delaware River Cleanup

May 16, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join United by Blue, HoneygrowPhiladelphia Water and Philadelphia Parks and Recreation for a “Love Your Park” cleanup of the Delaware River at Penn Treaty Park.  Along the rocky shoreline of the Delaware River in Philadelphia’s Fishtown neighborhood, sits Penn Treaty Park. With epic views of the Ben Franklin Bridge and the beautiful Delaware River, Penn Treaty park is a true symbol of the City of Brotherly Love. It was here, where history suggests, William Penn signed a peace treaty with the Lenape tribe, exchanging words of friendship. While the historical park is frequented by outdoor enthusiasts, runners, dog-lovers and picnickers alike, it is often a victim to trash that collects along the Delaware banks from surrounding industrial areas and the bustling Columbus Blvd. Please join us in cleaning up Penn Treaty Park, preserving its history for generations to come!

United By Blue will provide all of the cleanup supplies, and Honeygrow will bring snacks for all of the volunteers! All volunteers will also have the chance to win United By Blue prizes during two cleanup games. Please be sure to wear closed toe shoes and clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty or wet! Groups of all sizes are welcome!

After the cleanup, join us at Fette Sau (1208 Frankford Ave.) from 7-9 for a buffet and complementary Barefoot Wines!
