Darby Creek, PAThe Darby Creek Valley Association (DCVA) is an all volunteer, nonprofit organization dedicated to the protection and enhancement of all the Darby Creek watershed's resources, including water, wildlife, historical sites, and the floodplain. The Darby Creek watershed encompasses three counties in southeastern Pennsylvania (Montgomery, Delaware and Philadelphia) and eventually flows into the Delaware River at Tinicum, PA. Our primary mission is public education. DCVA is a well-established organization with over 100 members, a board, several working committees, an annual conference, an annual stream clean up, educational programs, and partnerships with historical sites in the watershed.

DCVA has implemented a volunteer monitoring network ("StreamWatch") in the Darby Creek watershed which has a strong environmental education component and reaches out to local schools and stream-side residents. Specifically, we are meeting with local residents, schools, scout troops, etc. to encourage the groups to adopt sections of the stream for monitoring. DCVA is also working with interested groups to provide the required training, equipment and technical support to monitor the sites.

If you have any questions or are interested in membership, please call (610) 789-1814 or send us an email.
