tacony creek cleanup

Second Saturday at Tacony Creek Park

Tacony Creek Park
June 8th
10:00am – 12:00pm

Come celebrate World Oceans Day with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, United by Blue and TTF Watershed at Tacony Creek Park. We will be coming together to help preserve the health and beauty of Tacony Creek. Come join our cleanup crew for a chance to win a United by Blue backpack made out of recycled plastic and stick around for free food after the cleanup. Environmental non-profits from the Philly area will be tabling to show how you can get more involved in their amazing efforts. All cleanup gear (gloves, pickers, buckets, & trash bags) will be provided, but feel free to bring your own gloves if preferred. Please wear comfortable clothing and closed-toed shoes, and don't forget sun protection and rain gear (just in case! ☔️). Lastly, be sure to bring a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated. 💧A water cooler will be available for refills. We cannot wait to sea you there!

This project is best suited for volunters age 16 & up. All necessary tools, materials, and guidance are provided. No prior experience is needed. Remember to wear a mask, and to stay home if you experience COVID-19 symptoms or have been in contact with a confirmed case in the last 14 days. 

This event will be cancelled in the event of heavy rain or thunder!
