The winter has ended, and our thoughts have turned to spring, spring cleaning that is! The Ewing Green Team has once again partnered with The Watershed Institute and Mayor Bert Steinmann to host our annual spring Stream Cleanup at the Hollowbrook Community Center.
The Shabakunk Creek flows behind the Community Center, a lovely tributary of the Assunpink Creek. From the Assunpink, the water ultimately flows to the Delaware River, the source of our drinking water.
We invite our friends and neighbors to gather together on Saturday, April 9th to clean up our community and make our watershed a healthier and even lovelier environment.
Volunteers at these annual events sponsored by The Watershed have removed thousands of pounds of trash, helping to make our watershed healthier, protect our environment and beautify our communities! All volunteers will receive a Stream Cleanup t-shirt as a memento.
Stream Cleanup Details
Date: Saturday, April 9, 2022
Time: 9 – 11 am
Location: Hollowbrook Community Center, 320 Hollowbrook Road
Pre-registration is required to keep everyone safe and healthy.
Our cleanup is a rain or shine event. Always wear gloves (please bring your own) when picking up litter and avoid any direct contact with trash. 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. Don’t forget your (reusable!) water bottle.
Masks and social distancing are optional. A parent or guardian must attend with all participating children. There must be a minimum of 1 adult per 3 participating children. The stream cleanup policies and waiver can be read here.
We look forward to spring cleaning with all of you on April 9th!
