Join Us for the Wetlands Spring Cleanup on Saturday, April 9th


Darby Creek Watershed
38th Annual Cleanup Event
Sacred Heart Academy Bryn Mawr
Saturday, April 9
9 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Each spring since 1984 the Darby Creek Valley Association 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.

On Saturday, April 9, Darby Creek Valley Association (DCVA) will host an outdoor cleanup at Sacred Heart Academy. Volunteers will work in the wetland and along the creek bank to remove invasive vines as well as trash and other debris.  Registered participants will receive a T-shirt.  Gloves, trash bags and trash grabbers will be supplied. Wear shoes that can get wet and muddy.

The event is from 9 a.m., but volunteers are welcome to come and leave when they can.

Darby Creek Valley Association (DCVA) is a local non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and enhancement of the Darby Creek watershed and its resources.  In early 2017, DCVA surveyed the historic wetland at the base of Sacred Heart Academy’s 12-acre campus, which over the years had become overgrown and crowded with invasive plants and trees, forcing out native species.
