Help with Visual Assessment of Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Creek

Posted by on February 7, 2003

The Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Creek Watershed Partnership is holding a training for volunteers to help put together a “visual assessment” for the Creek. The information will become part of the data collected for the Tacony/Frankford Creek River Conservation Plan, detailing the current condition of the Philadelphia portion of the Creek and including recommendations for improvements. The training will be held on March 7, beginning at 12pm (noon) with participants meeting outside at the corner of Kensington Ave & Deal Street, by the bridge over the Creek. Volunteers should be prepared to trudge along the creekside for about an hour.

Each participant is asked to do a visual assessment for at least one 500 ft section of the creek. All will get forms to follow and fill out. The contact person for this venture is Jeanne Waldowski of the Philadelphia Water Department’s Office of Watersheds. She can be reached at or (215) 685-4945.
