Green Valleys Watershed Association is seeking volunteers to participate
in a stream clean-up of the French Creek in downtown Phoenixville, PA.
The French Creek Clean-Up
will take place from 8:00am - noon on Saturday, April 26. Volunteers
will remove litter from the banks along the French Creek, starting in
the vicinity of the Foundry Building along Main Street. Seventeen volunteers,
including Phoenixville residents and members of Camp Hill Special Schools,
participated in last year’s French Creek Clean-Up alongside GVA staff,
and it was a rewarding experience. We removed 20 bags of litter, 2 bicycles,
and almost 80 pounds of metal scrap from the stream! This year if conditions
allow, we would like to clean the French Creek all the way to where
it meets the Schuylkill River - approximately 3/4 of a mile in length.
The clean-up will run rain or shine, although if weather conditions
are severe it will be postponed. As a registered event with the Great
American Clean-Up of PATM, we have received free clean-up supplies,
including trash bags, gloves, and traffic safety vests. Bottles of water
will be provided. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to
contact me by email or by phone at (610) 469-4900. I have enclosed with
this letter an event flier with details on the clean-up. Thank you for
your time. I hope that you will be able to join us. Stream clean-ups
are valuable acts of environmental stewardship! Click HERE
