5th Annual (Rubber) Duck Race/Creeks to River Festival - Alliance for Watershed Education of the Delaware River

5th Annual (Rubber) Duck Race/Creeks to River Festival

Saturday, October 10th

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

At Cobbs Creek, there are two creeks: Smaller Naylors Run flows into the larger Cobbs Creek, which flows to Darby Creek which meets the Delaware River at Tinicum. This flowing of one creek into another is called “stream order”. “We decided to teacher families in our area about stream order in a fun way,” reports George Ambrose, Board Member and Volunteer Coordinator. “We use rubber ducks, racing from one creek into the other.” When people register to sponsor a duck for $2, they are also asked to sign a pledge to return to the Center on one of three Service Days later in the year. “We see it as a win-win” Ambrose says. “Families have fun participating in the races, and the Center wins by gaining stewardship volunteers”. Registration forms available at Cobbs Creek Community Environmental Education Center, 63rd & Catherine Sts.,  Phila. PA
