Schuylkill Scrub Cleanup

We are celebrating the Schuylkill Action Network's 15th Anniversary with a Schuylkill Scrub cleanup! Join United By Blue, Schuylkill Action Network, the Philadelphia Water Department, Schuylkill River Greenways, Partnership for the Delaware Estuary, and Luke’s Lobster as we tackle the trash on the banks of our beloved river. The Schuylkill Scrub is a watershed initiative to cleanup as many sections of the river as possible, and with your help, we'll do our part in the Greater Philadelphia Area!  

The Schuylkill River Watershed, in southeastern Pennsylvania, supports wildlife and recreation from the Appalachian Mountains all the way down to the Delaware River, and into the Atlantic Ocean. In the Greater Philadelphia Area, the Schuylkill provides beautiful recreational areas and a home to Pennsylvania woodland creatures. Unfortunately, the river can be affected by trash and pollutants carried in through storm drains and littering. Do your part in the Schuylkill Scrub by lending a hand at our cleanup effort this May!

We will provide all cleanup supplies, and volunteers will enjoy snacks by Luke's Lobster after the cleanup. We recommend wearing sturdy shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty or wet.

United By Blue thanks Zipcar for its transportation support during the 2018 cleanup season.
