•Satur­day, Septem­ber 19: Clean Bread and Cheese Creek Com­mu­nity Cleanups

The Dundalk Eagle - - COMMUNITY CALENDAR -


is host­ing its Fall His­toric Bread and Cheese Creek Cleanup from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Vol­un­teers are needed for our Fall cleanup of the His­toric Bread and Cheese Creek. Won’t you please vol­un­teer a lit­tle of your time from 8 am un­til 2 pm for the Fall Bread and Cheese Creek Cleanup? For the fifth year in a row, we will be run­ning this cleanup in con­junc­tion with the Ocean Con­ser­vancy’s An­nual In­ter­na­tional Coastal Cleanup. We will be tar­get­ing the area of the stream from the Berk­shire Com­mu­nity to North Point Road. Vol­un­teers of all ages and abil­i­ties are needed. Help us re­move the trash be­fore it flows into Back River, the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Every piece of trash re­moved is a small vic­tory to be cel­e­brated. We run our cleanups as a fam­ily event with plenty of ways for vol­un­teers to par­tic­i­pate. We wel­come every type of per­son of every abil­ity level to con­trib­ute and as­sist with the cleanup. Though it is true we will need peo­ple to dig out shop­ping carts and haul trash to the dump­sters, we need peo­ple to run wa­ter, food, tools, and trash bags (both empty and full) to in­di­vid­u­als in the creek. Peo­ple to sort re­cy­clables from the de­bris re­moved. Peo­ple will be needed to help at reg­is­tra­tion, setup food and snacks as well as many other less stren­u­ous ac­tiv­i­ties. We are also au­tho­rized to sign-off on Com­mu­nity Ser­vice and Ser­vice Learn­ing Hours for stu­dents. The more peo­ple we have, the eas­ier the work will be for ev­ery­one. We will pro­vide lunch and snacks as well as gloves. A lim­ited num­ber of tools are avail­able for sig­nout, but sug­gest bring­ing your own if you have them. Since this cleanup cov­ers al­most four miles of stream we are al­ways in des­per­ate need of in­di­vid­u­als with trucks, jeeps and ATV’s wil­ing to haul trash from ex­trac­tion points to the dump­sters. Reg­is­tra­tion will be at 2408 Plain­field Road and will open at 7 a.m. and we will en­ter the stream at 8 a.m. after a brief ori­en­ta­tion. We are also look­ing for pho­tog­ra­pher/videog­ra­pher vol­un­teers to help us doc­u­ment our cleanup as well.
