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.

Cobbs Creek Ambassadors have ongoing weekly cleanups throughout Cobbs Creek Park in Philadelphia! Click here to view their current 2023 schedule and volunteer with them directly. You can also email Rich Guffanti to join the email list.

Thank you to our 2023 Sponsors



Darby Creek Valley Association is a membership supported organization. Memberships, sponsorships and donations help make program like these possible. Please consider donating or contact to find out how you can become a sponsor. 


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!
