It’s that time of year again, time for spring cleaning! The Ewing Green Team has partnered with The Watershed Institute and Mayor Bert Steinmann to host a spring Stream Cleanup at the Hollowbrook Community Center.
The Hollowbrook Community Center backs up to a beautiful stretch of the Shabakunk Creek, a tributary of Assunpink Creek. Water makes its way from the Shabakunk to the Assunpink, ultimately flowing to the Delaware River, the source of our Ewing drinking water. Friends and neighbors, let’s gather safely to clean up our community and make our watershed a healthier and even lovelier environment.

Pre-registration is required.
We are offering staggered start times to accommodate two groups of volunteers.
9:00am to 10:00am participants may register here
10:00am to 11:00am participants may register here
The cleanup is a rain or shine event. Please bring your own gloves and (reusable!) water bottle. Trash bags will be provided. Long pants and closed-toed shoes are suggested for woodier areas. The Hollowbrook grounds are often muddy closer to the creek, participants may be most comfortable wearing rain boots or similar waterproof shoes.
Masks, social distancing, and adult attendance are required. A parent or legal guardian is required to attend with all children. Children ages 2 and older must wear a mask at all times.
The stream cleanup policies and waiver can be read here.
We look forward to spring cleaning with all of you on April 24th!
