Cobbs Creek Trail Cleanup

April 11 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Help clean up Cobbs Creek Trail in celebration of the new trail extension from 70th Street to Woodland Ave. Join and help Philadelphia Parks and Recreation, Clean Air Council, East Coast Greenway, and Friends of Cobbs Creek Park North maintain the trail by raking leaves, removing dead branches, and picking up litter.

Gloves, trash bags, grabbers, water, and snacks will be provided to volunteers. Make sure to wear closed-toe shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Sign up ahead of time to enter to win a Hydro Flask book bag!

Tell your friends and neighbors, everyone is welcome!
