Since 1984 

Each spring since 1984 the Darby Creek Valley Association hosts a watershed-wide clean up event focusing on removing trash, tires, and other debris from regional waterways. During this event, volunteers work together to clean up sites located throughout the watershed.


In 2022 DCVA held 40 cleanup events and collected more than 16,000 pounds of debris from in and around our waterways - including more than 2 dozen tires, construction material, metal, plastics, and innumerable single use plastics, soda bottles, cans, and food wrappers.

DCVA is indebted to community volunteers, leaders, partners and sponsors; by working together throughout our entire watershed a larger impact was made and with continuing partnerships and combined resources we proved that we can make a difference! 

Thank you to our 2022 Sponsors
