Mark Saturday, May 1, on your calender for the 13th Annual Chester Ridley Crum Watershed (CRC
) Stream Cleanup from 9-11:30AM. The event is held rain or shine and volunteers wishing to help cleanup Eastlake Park (the lake) and Little Crum Creek should meet at 9 AM on Hillside Avenue.
Working volunteers should wear long pants, old sneakers or boots. The CRC will provide the other gear such as gloves, trash bags, repellant, and refreshments. Volunteers with waders are especially welcomed to help clean-up coordinator Brian Vadino physically walk Little Crum Creek.
Brian Vadino from the Delaware County Conservation District
is the Eastlake Park Coordinator again this year and his familiarity with "the Lake" and Eastlake Park are a big plus for Ridley Parkers.
Thanks to the hard work of Brian and the help of enthusiastic volunteers, 15 tons of trash were removed from the streamside areas last year. The goal is to surpass that record and have fun at the same time.
After the cleanup CRC hosts a complimentary thank you picnic at Drexel Lodge
for cleanup volunteers (from 11:45-1PM)that promises to fill the hungry appetites of every volunteer.
Hope to see you at Eastlake Park, May 1 for a cleaner and healthier environment.
