Annual Christina Watershed Cleanup

The 28th Annual Christina Cleanup is scheduled for Saturday, April 6, 2019 (8:00 AM to 12:00 PM)

Naamans Creek Watershed Association (NCWA) has been coordinating its annual cleanup with that of the Christina Conservancy for the past 20 years.

The Naamans Creek volunteers will meet at the back end of F & N Shopping Center (near the Wells Fargo side). Volunteers are invited to meet for lunch at 11:30 AM.

The Naamans Creek contingent usually pulls out over 2 tons of trash each year from the stream and surroundings. This trash includes car tires (last year 42 tires were removed), shopping carts, wire, and wooden fencing. Most of the material is plastic bags and bottles, soda and beer cans and newspaper circulars. We clean about 16 different sites in our watershed. County Councilman John Cartier participated in the cleanup in 2018  1-800-GotJunk picks up our trash.

Please post on your community page.  The Naamans Creek Watershed Association would like input and assistance from residents so we clean as much of the area as we can. There are also quite a few tributaries of Naamans Creek that run through some parkland and some private property. If the main creek or a tributary of Naamans Creek (any small creek entering the Delaware River through Claymont, Perkins Run, or Stoney Run) flows through your neighborhood and has trash collections in it please notify Marianne Cinaglia at mcinaglia@aol.com. The Water Resource Authority puts Perkins Run and Stoney Run in the Naamans Creek Watershed.
