Think Globally, Act Locally

Thank you to all who participated in this year’s Christina River Watershed! We look forward to next year.

Cleanup volunteers stuck closer to home this year by picking up trash and litter from their neighborhoods and parks. Throuh April and part of May, 96 volunteers cleared 1,340 pounds of trash! Amazing!

Doing your part for your community and environment is a great thing. Keep up the good work.

The mission of the Christina River Watershed Cleanup is to remove man-made debris from within the watershed, while raising public awareness for pollution prevention.  Since the first cleanup in 1992, volunteers for this annual event have cleared more than 360 tons of tires, appliances, household items, and other trash from rivers and creeks in the watershed of the Christina River Basin. These rivers and creeks include the Brandywine River, White Clay Creek, Red Clay Creek, and of course, the Christina River.  The watershed provides more than 75 percent of the water supply for residents and businesses in New Castle County, Delaware.
