Join United By Blue , U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service , Keep Philadelphia Beautiful , and the Philadelphia Water Department for a cleanup of Darby Creek in John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge this August!
The John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge was the first Urban Refuge in the United States, created to protect and preserve the area’s essential marshlands and tributary creeks. Located in the Delaware Estuary, the Refuge is a natural oasis for both wildlife and city-dwellers. Help us clean up any trash and debris that flows into the Refuge, and keep this important tributary and habitat healthy!
Rolling registration/sign-in will run from 8am - 9am - please arrive early if you're interested in selecting your volunteer grouping (kayaking, trails, or wetlands). United By Blue will provide all cleanup supplies and drinking water. Please wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes that you don't mind getting dirty or wet, as well as long pants. All volunteers will receive a reusable United By Blue water bottle and a free catered lunch as a thank you for your time! Please note, lunch will be served following the cleanup at 12pm. We recommend bringing a snack if you think you'll get hungry between 9am - 12pm.
United By Blue thanks Zipcar and GoPhillyGo for their transportation support during the 2018 cleanup season.
