From the Lower Susquehanna Heritage Greenway:
More than 1,000 volunteers, from Cecil and Harford Counties, participated in our 14th Annual River Sweep. Volunteers removed several tons of trash and debris including five propane tanks, 25 tires, large metal cylinders reminiscent of airplane parts, a shopping cart, car batteries, carpeting, a tarp, several compressed air or acetylene tanks, a full-size refrigerator and a large plastic tank.
THANK YOU to all of the volunteers, coordinators, supporters and sponsors for your time and the hard work it took to accomplish these amazing results.
Looking to do more? We encourage you to get involved in year-round stewardship efforts, such as:
Octoraro Creek/Moore Road
Two of our volunteers, Beth and Haley Walsh, pick up litter every few months and are looking for like-minded people to help with this effort. They’ve adopted Moore Road which parallels the Octoraro Creek across the street from the Conowingo Community Park. Many folks enjoy the creek to fish, swim, and to relax; however they often leave their bottles and bags behind. Contact Beth if you would like to be included on her e-mail blast for the next opportunity to keep the creek and river clean. Her e-mail address is email@example.com.
National Historic Tome School
Tome School had such a wonderful turnout for River Sweep that they are going to hold monthly cleanups throughout the summer and fall. The next tentative date is May 24. If anyone would like to be included in their email listing, they can contact Toni Lozzi, firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-378-9200.
Citizens Against Trash (CAT)
The CAT club meets every Saturday at 8:30am at the Concord Point Coffee House in Havre de Grace. Just look for the orange shirts. It’s a nice bunch of folks doing good and having fun. Their aim is to make Havre de Grace the cleanest city in Maryland and encourage a litter free society. You can find out more information on their Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/pages/Havre-de-Grace-CAT-Club/509029652451423, or by contacting Al Peteraf (email@example.com, 443-742-3352) or John Zimmerman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
