Volunteers are needed for the Annual Cameron County River and Roadside Cleanup on March 20. This is great opportunity to help make our area even more beautiful. You can choose to help clean the Driftwood Branch Stream or clean the roadway along Rt. 120.
To participate in the river clean up you must have a canoe and a partner or kayak. You will be assigned to specific locations along the stream or highway.
Participants will be meeting at the railroad bridge in Cameron at 12:00 (noon). Gloves, trash bags, and safety vests will be provided to participants.
Organizers are hopeful they will have enough volunteers to clean the stream from Cameron to Driftwood and RT 120 from Emporium to Driftwood.
As always, young people are encouraged to become involved in this event. This is a great way to make a positive impact and earn project service hours while having fun. Refreshments will be served.
You can register at the Cameron County High School office. To earn service credits you must also sign in on location at the start and finish of the event. Contact a representative of one of the following organizations if you have any questions.
