2022 Way to Protect the Watershed

Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed Partnership

The Tookany/Tacony-Frankford watershed — 30 square miles snaking from Abington in the north to Port Richmond in the south — is one of five watersheds that flow into the Delaware, so its cleanliness affects all of us. Supporting the watershed partnership’s work (creek restoration, native plantings, and a host of other things) is a way to make you feel a little bit better about your footprint. If you live in Montgomery County, you can order a rain barrel through the organization, helping it in the process.
