Walking Tour showing the results of our 4/14/12 cleanup in the Merritt Blvd. pt. 1
These photos and videos shows the results of the hard work of 115 volunteers in the Merritt Boulevard area of Bread and Cheese Creek between Merritt Boulevard and Willow Road on 4/14/12 (Our original goal was Plainfield Road by our incredible volunteers wet way beyond that goal.
Together we cut up and moved 3 fallen trees blocking the stream, we removed thirty yards of trash and debris, on twenty yards of metal metal (which included 7 shopping carts, a lawn mower, and engine head and the bumper from a 1972 Chevelle), 7 tires, 5 cans of paint 2 bicycles, a couch, a bowling ball and an office chair. This has helped reveal the natural beauty of the historic Bread and Cheese Creek, and kept this trash from flowing into Back River, The Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean!
All left over donated food is re-donated to the local food kitchen "Saint Rita's Table" which hosts dinners for Dundalk's needy and homeless every Monday evening.
