Schuylkill Canal Cleanup

  • Fitzwater Station 264 Canal Street Phoenixville, PA, 19460 United States (map)

All hands on deck! The Schuylkill Canal Association is in need of some help on Saturday, October 22nd. They are currently facing a large bloom of Water Lettuce on the canal, which has taken over the Oaks portion of the canal and continues to grow. Help a hand if you can to remove this invasive aquatic plant that is choking the canal. Meet at Fitzwater Station on Canal Street. They will be working from the spillway near Fitzwater Station down to Oaks.
