Clean Your Streams Day

Tired of all the trash along the streams in the area? Come help PCS and its Partners clean your streambanks. Over 79 tons of trash have been collected in fourteen years from local streambanks. Interesting items such as gun safe, prom dress, 18í boat w/motor, pipe organ, 1988 hunting license, antique ringer washing machine, parking tickets (5), Employee of the Month award, 1973 Pepsi can, koala statue, book bag w/anatomy & biology books were found last year and hauled away for proper disposal.

Volunteer to remove litter and see what you can find. Clean Your Streams Day begins at 8 a.m. and ends with an Appreciation Picnic for all participants following the cleanup. Awards are given for our competitions at the picnic, as well as special thank you items for participants. Information from previous years can be downloaded from the PCS Publications page.
