Tomorrow Night: The Watershed So Nice They Named It Thrice

Join us tomorrow night, Thursday April 19 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Fairmount Water Works Interpretive Center, to learn about the activities and achievements of the Tookany-Tacony/Frankford Watershed Partnership. We'll talk about the TTF Watershed Partnership's history, ways you can get involved, and recent projects such as the storm drain marking initiative pictured above.

Why does one creek have three names, anyway? It begins in Montgomery County as Tookany Creek, is spelled differently (Tacony) in Philadelphia, then becomes Frankford Creek near the intersection of I and Ramona in Juniata Park. Read more about the watershed's history here.
