4-25-2015 18th Annual CRC Streams Cleanup!
Friends of Glen Providence Park is proud to be helping the Chester-Ridley-Crum Watersheds Association (CRC) with their 18th Annual Streams Cleanup! This year CRC volunteers will remove trash at more than 30 sites along Chester, Ridley and Crum Creeks and their tributaries, including Broomall’s Run in Glen Providence Park.
18th Annual CRC Streams Cleanup Day
Saturday, April 25
Glen Providence Park – main entrance
* Lunch & t-shirts provided for registered volunteers – more information below *
The Annual Streams Cleanup is just one of many activities that CRC undertakes to further its mission “To protect, conserve, and restore the natural resources of the Chester, Ridley, and Crum Creek watersheds.” CRC’s activities and public education programs range from erosion control projects and tree planting to training on freshwater mussels, rain gardens, rain barrels, and healthy yards.
This is our fourth year coordinating the CRC Streams Cleanup for Glen Providence Park – last year, 14 adult and 3 child volunteers cleared 16 bags of trash and invasive plants.
2014 Stream Cleanup information:
- ** Please register for the cleanup through the CRC website to get a free participant t-shirt and picnic lunch, and so that CRC can plan for supply quantities. **
- Meet at the Glen Providence Park main entrance on West State Street in Media at 9:00 am.
- Rain or shine.
- Gloves and bags will be provided.
- We recommend long pants and long sleeves to protect against poison ivy and ticks.
- If you’d like to tackle trash along the streambank, wear water shoes, boots, or old shoes!
- In addition to stream cleanup, we may have other projects for you to choose from – such as clearing invasive plants along the trails.
The lunch will be held at:
