Darby Creek Watershed 39th Annual Stream Cleanup
Saturday, April 15, 2023
Each spring since 1984 the Darby Creek Valley Association (DCVA) hosts a watershed-wide cleanup 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.
In 2022, DCVA held 40 cleanup events and collected more than 16,000 pounds of debris from in and around our waterways - including more than 2 dozen tires, construction material, metal, pleastics, and innumerable single use plastics, soda bottles, cans, and food wrappers.
DCVA is indebted to community volunteers, leaders, partners and sponsors; by working together throughout our entire watershed a larger impact was made and with continuing partnership san dcombiend resources we proved that we can make a difference!
