On Earth Day, the sun was shining, the birds were chirping, and lots of energetic volunteers from MedImmune and the Olney Christian School were celebrating Earth Day by working hard to keep Tacony Creek Park clean and green. The focus this Earth Day was the Rorer Street and Roosevelt Boulevard gateway.
Thank you to our friends at American Rivers, who let the folks at MedImmune know about TTF’s work. Over 20 employees came to be part of a gateway cleanup. They collected a lot of trash, including a mattress and car parts!

On the north side of Roosevelt Boulevard, students from Olney Christian School planted native flowers, cleaned up in the park, and enjoyed the sunshine.
These volunteers — young and old – spruced up the park and learned about our creeks and watershed. Together, they helped us to make sure that park is ready for all of the events we have coming up!
