March 5, 2009, Catskill News: Volunteers Urged to Clean Stream Banks

Volunteers urged to clean stream banks

MARGARETVILLE – The Catskill Watershed Corporation is again supporting groups and individuals who clean litter and other debris from stream banks in their neighborhoods.

Youth and school groups, church organizations, civic and business associations, neighborhood groups and teams of friends are encouraged to scour stream and riversides for trash and to dispose of it properly.

The CWC will provide trash bags, gloves and tokens of appreciation for those who choose to serve their communities in this way. Call Mary Jane Oppenheimer at 845-586-1400 to arrange to get these items.

Volunteers might wish to do a cleanup in observance of Earth Day, April 22, or to coordinate their efforts with National Stream Clean-up Day sponsored by Trout Unlimited on June 13.  

American Rivers is also calling for groups to participate in a National River Cleanup effort this spring.
