Wissahickon Creek Clean Up 2021

Saturday, April 24, 2021
9:00am - 1:00pm

2021 marks the celebration of the 51st anniversary of the Wissahickon Trails Creek Clean Up and Earth Day. Just like the 2021 Earth Day theme, Restore Our Earth, Wissahickon Trails is empowering our community to restore our Wissahickon. Volunteer for the 51st Annual Wissahickon Creek Clean Up on Saturday, April 24. This is the perfect outdoor event to show your support and love for a clean Wissahickon watershed, while keeping safe and physically distant from others.

All volunteers are pre-assigned to sections of the Creek, its tributaries and the trail. Use this SignUp Genius form to sign up for a section. Each section lists the clean-up location, how many cars can park there and the number of recommended volunteers. To see a full list of sites with a map, visit our website. Maps include where to park, start cleaning, stop cleaning and leave the trash you collect.

All volunteers are required to wear masks and keep at least the recommended 6-foot distance from other volunteers not in your household group.

Most participants begin cleaning around 9:00 am, but that time is flexible. Report directly to your assigned section and leave your trash in the designated areas by 1:00pm.

Volunteers will pick-up their bags and supplies at our Wissahickon Trails headquarters in Ambler. Due to the offices not being staffed at this time, we will send an email the week prior to the event with dates and times for contactless pick-up.

To keep our volunteers and staff safe, we will not be holding our Talkin’ Trash picnic this year; feel free to support local businesses instead by ordering takeout or delivery for lunch. But we still want to see and hear about your hard work cleaning up the Creek! Share your photos on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and use #creekcleanup. Be sure to tag us in your posts!
