Due to precautions against COVID-19, also known as coronavirus, the Christina River Watershed Cleanup, set for April 4, is now cancelled. Thank you to those who signed up to volunteer!
To learn more information about the event, go to: http://www.christinarivercleanup.org
The mission of the Christina River Watershed Cleanup is to remove man-made debris from within the watershed, while raising public awareness for pollution prevention. Since the first cleanup in 1992, volunteers for this annual event have cleared more than 360 tons of tires, appliances, household items, and other trash from rivers and creeks in the watershed of the Christina River Basin. These rivers and creeks include the Brandywine River, White Clay Creek, Red Clay Creek, and of course, the Christina River. The watershed provides more than 75 percent of the water supply for residents and businesses in New Castle County, Delaware.
Trash doesn’t remove itself. We need people to step up and help.
This is a great volunteer opportunity for everyone! To volunteer, just sign up and donate your time. Spend a few hours to spend along Naamans Creek in northern Delaware, near Interstate 95 within Churchman’s Marsh or near White Clay Creek.
