Did rain dampen your plans for Earth Day?

No problem.

You can join the CRC’s 15th Annual Streams Cleanup.

Volunteers will meet to pitch in and clean up the creeksides on Saturday, May 5,  from 9 to 11:30 am.

Just choose one of several meeting sites in the Chester, Ridley, and Crum watersheds.

Then register to attend.

Sites include two spots along Little Crum Creek:  one upstream at Little Crum Creek Park in Swarthmore and one downstream at Ridley Park Lake.

Free t-shirt and picnic following cleanup.

After all, it’s always an Earth day, right?


Going on three springs now, our exploration of Little Crum Creek has been adding up to a fair catalogue of life along the water.

All along, I’ve been looking forward to creating a page where visitors can easily browse lists of flowers, trees, birds, insects, and everything else we’ve found.

Now, on the brand new Browse page, you’ll find several lists arranged for easy reference and identification.

Just click on any topic to see all posts that have featured what you want to see.

Browse potential will grow with every new post to the Home page.

Hope you find it as useful as I do!
