Individuals, families and groups can celebrate Earth Day and make an impact in their community by taking part in the 20h Annual Watershed Cleanup Day April 23 from 8 a.m. to noon.
Volunteers will descend on sites throughout Centre County's watersheds to clean up trash and litter and then celebrate together at a Volunteer Picnic at Spring Creek Park in State College.
Since 1997, Watershed Cleanup Day volunteers have removed 5.8 million pounds of waste from local streams, roadways, sinkholes, and illegal dumpsites.
Led by ClearWater Conservancy and in partnership with Centre County Recycling & Refuse Authority and the local MS4 partners, Watershed Cleanup Day is supported by local contractors, heavy equipment operators, businesses, and Centre County municipalities.
In 2015, 380 volunteers helped to remove about 47 tons of trash from Centre County. Please join your neighbors April 23rd to help keep Centre County beautiful as we try to collect another 50 tons!
To join the 2016 Cleanup as a group, family or individual please use the online signup.
Volunteers can suggest a cleanup site or be assigned to a site. All materials are provided.For more information on programs, initiatives and special events, visit the ClearWater Conservancy website. Click Here to sign up for regular updates from the Conservancy.
