Volunteers Still Needed for Watershed Cleanup Days
It’s time for our stream valleys to get their regular physicals. Watershed Clean-Up Day is nearing, and with it comes an opportunity for individuals, students, families, scouts and other community groups to be part of this year’s International Coastal Cleanup. Help clear the earth’s arteries by collecting tires, bed springs, bottles, cans and other debris from your local waterways. Give your community a clean bill of health, and earn the gratitude of your furred, feathered and scaled neighbors. Wear boots, old clothes and bring gloves. Trash bags and appreciation provided. This is a great community service project!
Help at one of these sites from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, September 16 or Saturday, October 14, 2017.
Sign up online or call one of the sites to reserve a spot for a group.
