Before 11/8/14 cleanup historic Bear Creek Stream
Photos taken before our Bear Creek Stream Cleanup.Please help clean up where both the British and American set up defensive positions during the War of 1812, Battle of North Point. The British also used this location to evacuate their wounded and POW’s. This event will be run in conjunction with Better Waterways, American Rivers, Trash Free Maryland, and National Public Lands Day Everyday. While cleanup up Bear Creek Shoreline (on 9/6/14) we saw how bad this section was and knew we had to clean it up!

Registration will be located at the intersection of Trappe Road and Park Haven Road (Near General John Stricker School), Dundalk, MD 21222. Looks for the registration tents and the “Clean Bread and Cheese Creek Banners. Registration will open at 8:00 am, and the cleanup will run from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm.


We run our cleanups as a family event with plenty of ways for volunteers to participate. We welcome every type of person of every ability level to contribute and assist with the cleanup. Though it is true we will need people to dig out shopping carts and haul trash to the dumpsters, we need people to run water, food, tools, and trash bags (both empty and full) to individuals in the creek. People to sort recyclables from the debris removed. People will be needed to help at registration, setup food and snacks as well as many other less strenuous activities. We are also authorized to sign-off on Community Service and Service Learning Hours for students. The more people we have, the easier the work will be for everyone. We will provide lunch and snacks as well as gloves. A limited number of tools are available for sign-out, but suggest bringing your own if you have them
