11/7/15 Bear Creek Stream Cleanup: Before, During and After Photos
Despite a very rainy day on Saturday, November 7, 2015 over 100 volunteers arrived at the historic Bear Creek working tirelessly to remove over 217 bags of trash and 1,000 pounds of metal! 14 shopping carts, 12 tires, 5 plastic chairs, 4 bicycles, 2 room sized pieces of carpet, several pieces of chain-link fence, a lawnmower, a steam cleaner, a bead frame with headboard, an IBM Computer and a 5 gallon water cooler filled with tobacco and much more was removed as well!
Our cleanup was ran in association with Better Waterways as well as American Rivers.
We would like to thank all our incredible volunteer form the community, and Towson University who braved the rain and helped us cleanup our community! We would also like to thank Entenmann’s Bakery Outlet for donating donuts for all out hungry volunteers. Thank you everyone for all your hard work and for helping us strive for a cleaner, greener, healthier community and environment!

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.

Community Service and Service Learning Hours are available as well!
