STREAM BANK CLEANUP
PVCA's annual Streambank Cleanup is scheduled for April 20th 2013.
Each spring, the Penns Valley Conservation Association sponsors a stream bank cleanup -- designating a morning and afternoon to pick up trash along the banks of the streams in our local watershed -- Pine, Penns, Elk and Sinking Creeks.
Volunteers scour the banks and bag trash to be picked up and returned to a central point (a dumpster at Coburn Park). Surprising volumes of trash are collected; typically we fill a 20 yard dumpster.
Prizes are awarded for the most unusual finds, most bags, etc. Further incentives include snacks and coffee. Potluck; bring a dish to share, if possible...
