Dorchester County Communities Rally for Project Clean Stream
On Saturday, April 1st, citizen volunteers, local officials, organizations and businesses will join Project Clean Stream, a Chesapeake watershed-wide cleanup effort. Started by the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, Project Clean Stream brings together tens of thousands of volunteers from New York to Virginia to clean up local streams and neighborhoods in one of the largest cleanup events in the Chesapeake Bay region. This year Dorchester County is increasing its participation with multiple cleanup sites across Cambridge and Vienna. With more cleanup locations comes the need for more community volunteers to take action!
In 2016, regional coordinator Midshore Riverkeeper Conservancy recorded over 8,500 pounds of trash removed from local streams, rivers, and neighborhood streets across 19 cleanup sites across the Midshore region. This year, Dorchester County has increased its cleanup locations due to support from city commissioners through the Cambridge Association of Neighborhoods, city Green Teams, and local community organizations, including Choptank Heritage Trail, Dorchester Citizens for Planned Growth, Cambridge Multi-Sport, and Cambridge Sail and Power Squadron.
Join the movement to restore and protect our local waterways. Visit pg-cloud.com/ACB/ to view an online map of cleanup locations and sign up to volunteer. Interested volunteers can also contact Suzanne@midshoreriverkeeper.org or call 443-385-0511 to sign up for a location, or create their own team. Happy spring cleaning
