United by Blue and a crew of about 100 volunteers gathered at Penn Treaty Park on Tuesday night for a cleanup of the river and the surrounding land. Other than a large volume of small pieces of plastic and glass, volunteers found tires, rusted fencing and plenty of weird trash: a Samsung cellphone, fish tank, "personal toy", video tape collection, and a few waterlogged books. After the cleanup, of-age volunteers enjoyed a cold beverage courtesy of Barcade .
Special thanks to our wonderful volunteers, including groups from Levi's , Youth Volunteer Corps Philly , Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia and supporting partners Philadelphia Water , Philadelphia Parks and Recreation , Klean Kanteen for providing reusable drinking cups and The Living Room Cafe for supplying tasty snacks for all volunteers!
