United By Blue Tacony Creek Cleanup – Waterway Cleanup Tour

March 16, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join United By Blue for a community cleanup event in Tacony Creek Park! Kicking off the year in cleanup style, we’ll meet at the Whitaker Ave Gateway entrance to the park, and head out to clean the park’s riverbanks and trails. This cleanup will be in an effort to prepare the park and Circuit Trails system for a Spring 5k the following weekend.
After a morning of cleaning our waterways and outdoor recreation areas, we’ll enjoy complimentary snacks and hear from the Philadelphia Water Dept. and TTF Watershed Association, and the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary about the great work they’re doing to keep our waterways clean year-round! Prize giveaways provided by REI Co-op and United By Blue.
Help us bring our mission of removing a pound of trash from waterways for every product we sell to life by joining us for this cleanup. We’ll provide cleanup supplies, water and reusable water bottles, and snacks. You bring sturdy shoes, long pants, and your friends!
