Gliding through rolling hills, farms and forests, large and small towns, the Brandywine, White Clay, and Red Clay Creeks, and Christina River constitute the watershed of the Christina River Basin, before continuing into the Delaware River.  This watershed provides more than 75% of the water supply for residents and businesses in New Castle County, Delaware.

The Christina River Watershed Cleanup’s mission has always been the removal of man-made debris from within this beautiful watershed, while raising public awareness for pollution prevention.  Since the Cleanup began in 1992, more than 360 tons of tires, appliances, household items, and other trash have been cleared from within the watershed.

Join hundreds of volunteers and help clean the single most important natural resource in our region!  A solid effort is needed each year to keep each of these waterways as free from debris as possible while also improving wildlife habitat.

Do you have a few hours to spend along Naamans Creek in northern Delaware?  How about you and your coworkers volunteering near I-95 within Churchmans Marsh?  What about a little time working near White Clay Creek, in Delaware or Pennsylvania?

Environmental Scholarship in Memory of
Edward ‘Ned’ Webb Cooch, Jr.

The Edward W. Cooch, Jr. Environmental Scholarship fund has been established to honor the late Mr. Cooch, or simply Ned, as he was known to family and friends. As an avid environmentalist with a deep passion for the natural lands and water resources of Delaware, Ned was one of the founders of the Christina Conservancy and a driving force behind the creation of the Christina River Watershed Cleanup.
