Trash is everywhere throughout our watersheds. It’s nearly impossible to go anywhere without seeing garbage littering roadways, fluttering through farm fields, floating in ditches and streams, and dirtying parks. This spring, ShoreRivers and volunteers are hosting community trash cleanups as part of Project Clean Stream, a Bay-wide trash cleanup organized by the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay and coordinated by local groups like ShoreRivers. Project Clean Stream is an opportunity for citizens across the entire Bay watershed to work together to clean our shared water resource.
Friday, April 1 marks the official kickoff date, and cleanups will continue throughout May.
