* IN CASE OF WEATHER CANCELLATION, THIS EVENT WILL BE SUNDAY JUNE 30TH. *

Enjoy an afternoon at the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge and learn about the types of debris that flow from our cities into the ocean by helping to clean it up! Experience how important the public is to keep trash out of our natural spaces and wildlife habitat that is dependent on coastal areas. The Heinz NWR struggles with regular deposition of significant debris from Philadelphia, and keeps this trash from making its way into the Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Sierra Club members and supporters, friends and family members, are all invited to join in as we tackle the Rt 420 area of the Refuge, a less-known area of the Refuge that has significant debris pile-up. We will meet at the Visitor's Center and then drive to the Rt 420 area.
