Trash is Gone; The Watershed is Clean!

Tuesday, April 29, 2014 - 5:00pm

April 12 was our annual watershed clean-up and it was a beautiful day for getting in the creek and getting the trash out!

The officials numbers are:
37 bags of trash
8 bags of recycling
one shopping cart
one bike
one suitcase
miscellaneous metal pieces and car part
64 volunteers for a total of 161 hours
woo! woo!

We also pulled garlic mustard that day.  This invasive weed was just starting to show its head, but we managed to pull 8 bags.

Thank you to everyone who came out and to the Westmoreland Garden Club who partners with us every year taking the lower part of the Little Falls Branch while we take the upper part and the Willett Branch.  And thanks to Tim Eden and his son for volunteering the next weekend to finish the job by picking up the creek that runs between Kenwood and the Little Falls Parkway.
