After 5/10/14 Bear Creek and Charlesmont Park Cleanup
The Beautiful results after the cleanup from our incredible volunteers. Thank you volunteers you did it AGAIN on 5/10/14! Despite an absolutely dismal weather prediction 85 volunteers showed up to remove a huge amount of trash from Bear Creek and Charlesmont Park! Together we filled a 40 yard dumpster to capacity including 12 shopping carts, 6 couches, 4 bicycles, 6 tires, 2 vacuum cleaners, 2 mattresses, 2 wooden chairs, one wing-back chair one box spring, one entertainment system, and electric Barbie Guitar and much more! Thank you volunteers you rock! We will try to post more photos shortly but if you took any photos at our cleanup today please send them to us – Thank you!

We would like to send a special “Thank You!” out to all the dedicated volunteers from the U.S. Navy, Bear Creek Recreation Council, and Towson University!
