Dear Friends,
We’re on the move every day, from Jenkintown to Frankford, and in every community in-between, teaching, cleaning, planting, and advocating for our watershed. You’ve seen us introducing our Creekmobile to Tacony Creek Park neighbors and delivering trees to Jenkintown Creek volunteers.

We need wheels to get this work done ! For the past 13 years, we have packed our personal cars to the brim with shrubs, shovels and supplies. We have spent too many dollars renting U-Hauls to bring our Creekmobile to community events far away.
