Join us for the biggest day of volunteer stewardship in the French Creek watershed!

It’s year 25 for the Annual French Creek Cleanup! Once again, volunteers will come together on the first Saturday after Labor Day, Saturday, September 9, 2017, to make the French Creek watershed an even better place to live, work, and play!

Any waterway in the French Creek Watershed is fair game – trash all flows downstream, after all! You can walk the banks or walk in shallow tributaries, or where appropriate, you can clean by kayak or canoe! Not sure where to clean? Click on the image at the right for some ideas!

After cleaning your section of the watershed, bring your trash to Sprague Farm & Brew Works for the Volunteer Picnic and Weigh-In. There’s a new prize structure this year, with more chances for your team to take home a cash treasure! While you’re cleaning, keep your eye out for that unique find and bring this special treasure to the picnic for a Most Unusual Find contest!

The Annual Cleanup is also French Creek Valley Conservancy’s biggest fundraiser of the year, so come prepared! There’ll be an awesome raffle auction and chances to take home some great prizes donated by area businesses and regional businesses.

The picnic starts at noon and weigh in by 4pm to be considered for prizes.

Register early to be guaranteed a commemorative t-shirt in your size!
