Event Details

Need something to do while staying “socially distant”? Help the Pennypack Trust clean-up 4 miles of the Creek! This year we’re encouraging you to help us without forming groups. Come alone or with your little tribe from Thursday, March 19 through Friday March 27th. Trash bags will be available for pick up in front of our visitor’s center on 2955 Edge Hill Road. Simply take a walk along the Pennypack Creek during daylight hours and pick up trash. Tie your full bags tight and leave them beside the trail. Our staff will pick up bags daily. Be prepared to get muddy, bring your own work gloves and boots if you have them.

Areas of Focus:
Mason’s Mill parking lot upstream to the Pennypack Road parking lot.
Mason’s Mill parking lot downstream to Creek Road bridge
Creek Road bridge to Huntingdon Road*
Paper Mill Bridge upstream to Rosebush Trail*
Paper Mill Bridge downstream to the Bryn Athyn Post Office*

*Feel free to access the other side of the creek from the County trail. You may leave your full garbage bags next to the county trail, too. Please avoid steep slopes, deep channels, and fast-moving water between Huntingdon Road and Rosebush Trail.

Have a good time, stay safe, and tag us on Facebook and Instagram pictures. Questions? Contact or call the office at 215-657-0830.
