The Christina River Watershed Clean-Up will take place at multiple locations throughout the state of Delaware, so be sure to find the one closest to you. Register and learn more about the clean-up at the official website.
Gliding through rolling hills, farms and forests, large and small towns, the Brandywine, White Clay, and Red Clay Creeks, and Christina River constitute the watershed of the Christina River Basin, before continuing into the Delaware River. This watershed provides more than 75% of the water supply for residents and businesses in New Castle County, Delaware.
The Christina River Watershed Cleanup’s mission is the removal of man-made debris from within this beautiful watershed, while raising public awareness for pollution prevention. Since the Cleanup began in 1992, more than 360 tons of tires, appliances, household items, and other trash have been cleared from within the watershed.
Join hundreds of volunteers and help clean the single most important natural resource in our region! A solid effort is needed each year to keep each of these waterways as free from debris as possible while also improving wildlife habitat.
Current locations for clean-ups include: Naamans Creek, Brandywine Creek State Park – Thompsons Bridge, Fox Point State Park, City of Wilmington, Riverfront Wilmington, Newport Boat Ramp, Airport Road Sheraton, Hale-Byrnes House, Churchmans Marsh – Christiana, Brookhaven Park, White Clay Creek State Park, City of Newark Community Cleanup, Smalley's Pond, and Cooch-Dayett Mills.
