Volunteers are needed for the Red Clay Valley Cleanup on March 19 which will sweep more than 83 miles of stream and roadways along the east and branches of Red Clay Creek, including Kennett Square in Chester County.
In 2015 764 volunteers collected more than 10 tons of trash.
Volunteers can check-in at the DNS Ashland Center in Yorklyn, or at Anson B. Nixon Park in Kennett Square for the 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. cleanup.
After refreshments, including coffee from Starbucks, volunteers are dispersed to assigned areas along the route. Necessary materials, like gloves, trash bags, and reflective safety vests, are provided.
