DCVA 17th Annual Stream Watch
Saturday, April 3rd, 2021
Lunch will be provided
Come help us sample the macroinvertebrates in the creek! Stay for the whole time or show up at anytime. This is a great opportunity for you to get in the creek, take samples, work with the samplers, and see what is living in Darby Creek. We take samples from sixlocations on Darby Creek: Bartram Park in Darby, the Swedish Cabin in Upper Darby, Darby Creek Road in Haverford (downstream from the Haverford Reserve), Skunk Hollow in Radnor, the Brandywine Preserve at Waterloo Mills in Easttown, and the pump house next to the bridge on Newtown Road Berwyn.
This is a wonderful way to meet others and learn more about Darby Creek!
Since 1984 DCVA and volunteers have worked diligently to clean our waterways and surrounding areas of debris that would wind up in our streams.
While we promote a specific day for our large clean up on April 10th, we also have other locations, dates and times that may vary. Visit our Watershed Cleanups page for current locations. The list of locations are being updated on a regular basis so be sure to check back if you don't see a site or contact email@example.com if you would like a site added.
Sponsorship opportunities are available.
