TTFWebDesignHmPgPhoto-10-27A watershed is all of the land that drains rainwater into a particular body of water. The rainwater often carries chemicals, trash, and other materials over the land and into storm drains, depositing them directly into our creeks, streams, and rivers. This has an adverse impact on everything from plants and wildlife to our sources of drinking water. Not sure if you live in our watershed? Find your watershed here.

Our Mission

TTF’s mission is to improve the health and vitality of the Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Creek and watershed–which includes neighborhoods in North, Northeast, and Northwest Philadelphia and Abington, Cheltenham, Jenkintown, Rockledge, and Springfield in Montgomery County– by engaging our communities in education, stewardship, restoration, and advocacy. 

Working with a variety of groups including residents, schools, community organizations, environmental advisory councils, businesses and policy makers, we build watershed awareness, participation, and stewardship through workshops, lessons, tours, field trips, volunteer activities, and restoration projects. All of our restoration projects serve as watershed classrooms, offering ongoing educational and stewardship opportunities. For more information, download the TTF brochure.
