Water connects us

Healthy watersheds support healthy communities. Across the Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed we implement programs that educate neighbors and stakeholders about clean water issues and how we can all make a difference in our own backyards, parks, and communities.

Who We Are

We’re all about connecting people to their creeks…because our mission is to improve the health and vitality of our watershed by collaborating with our municipalities and leading our communities in education, stewardship, restoration, and advocacy.

We work with neighbors, volunteers, schools, municipal governments, local businesses, and other community members to restore our watershed and strengthen our communities.

Our Watershed

Tookany/Tacony-Frankford watershed is a 30 square mile area located in southeast Pennsylvania, both within and just outside the city of Philadelphia. It is one of Philadelphia’s five main watersheds, all of which flow into the Delaware River. Any rain that falls on the white area of the map will eventually flow into the Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Creek.
