We’re all about connecting people to their creeks!
Across our watershed – from the headwaters in our upstream communities of Abington, Cheltenham, Jenkintown, Rockledge, and Springfield in Montgomery County – to our downstream neighborhoods in North, Northeast, and Northwest Philadelphia – we implement programs that educate neighbors and stakeholders about clean water issues and how we can all make a difference in own backyards, parks, and communities.
We inform people about how green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) can improve our creeks. In Philadelphia, in partnership with the Parks & Recreation and Water departments, we have a special focus on Tacony Creek Park, inviting neighbors to discover this historic urban watershed park and creek through nature programs as well as engagement and improvement efforts. In our upstream communities, we work with partners ranging from member municipalities, to school districts, to institutions, to implement stream restoration and GSI projects. We’ve been able to expand our efforts encouraging and supporting our municipalities to undertake watershed improvement strategies as well as to implement restoration projects through the support of the Delaware River Watershed Initiative of the William Penn Foundation.
