NPWA stream clean up little girlOn Saturday, September 21, 2013, North Branch Watershed Association (NBWA) partnered with Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful to host a stream clean-up at the Creekside Inn on Butler Avenue in Chalfont Borough, Bucks County. The event was part of the 2013 International Coastal Cleanup, a global effort spearheaded by Oceans Conservancy to clean up coastal areas as well as the streams and watersheds that drain to them.

Twenty-nine dedicated volunteers came out for the afternoon to help make a difference in their community. Together, the group removed an assortment of items including construction debris, bottles, bags, food wrappers and take-out containers from the stream. Over a distance of about .75 of a mile, the group removed approximately 425 pounds of trash. Cigarette butts were by far the most common item found with even the youngest toddler in the group retrieving and disposing of many of those while the most unusual item recovered was a push lawnmower. 

In addition to the volunteers, NBWA wishes to thank the Creekside Inn for use of their parking lot as the cleanup headquarters and New Britain Township for assisting with the removal and proper disposal of the collected trash and debris.

The North Branch Watershed Association is working to improve, protect and preserve the North Branch Neshaminy Creek, its stream corridors and tributaries, through environmental education, conservation efforts, and promotion of sound land use practices, for the benefit of the community and the health of the watershed ecosystem.  

For membership information, please contact Meghan Rogalus, Watershed Specialist for the Bucks County Conservation District, at 215-345-7577 ext. 107.
