Nestled within Philadelphia's concrete jungle, John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge serves as an urban oasis and sanctuary protecting and preserving Darby Creek and surrounding Tinicum Marsh. Established in 1972 as America's first wildlife refuge, John Heinz NWR is home to a large variety of mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish, and over 300 bird species including many threatened and endangered species. Darby Creek, which runs through the refuge,  plays a vital role for migrating fish and birds. Due it 's proximity to the urban world, the creek is constantly threatened by toxic storm water run- off and dumped litter. It is important that we take care of Philadelphia's rare natural world, and protect the wildlife that call this city home. Please join United by Blue to clean up Darby Creek at John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge.

United by Blue will provide all of the cleanup supplies, and all volunteers will have the chance to win United by Blue prizes. Lunch will be provided by  Brother's Catering

Please be sure to wear closed toe shoes and clothes that you don't mind getting dirty or wet!
