A 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.

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 collaborating with our municipalities and leading communities in education, stewardship, restoration, and advocacy.

TTF BrochureWorking closely with our communities, we support the Philadelphia Water Department’s Green City, Clean Waters 25-year plan to protect our watershed by managing storm water with innovative green infrastructure. We implement and encourage these same strategies with partners in our upstream communities.
