Local volunteers clean up Bear Creek
Organizers and volunteers with Clean Bread and Cheese Creek had perfect weather to work with more than 65 dedicated volunteers at the Bear Creek Park and Stream Cleanup, removing 180 bags of trash, an office chair, three bicycles, a minibike, the roll cage from a go-cart, a guitar and much more from upper Bear Creek. The group thanks everyone for their hard work under such tough conditions. “Our volunteers are dedicated to a cleaner, greener, healthier community and environment,” the organization noted in a release. “They are without equal! Thank to everyone who volunteered with us today.”
