Indian Creek cleanup, April 25, 2015:

The Anacostia Earth Day cleanup along Sunnyside Avenue in Beltsville was a great success. The weather was cloudy and cold but dry. It was perfect for the workout that such a cleanup usually is.
BCWWG CCRIC and AWS thank the 32 volunteers that came to this cleanup!
Together, we pulled from the roadside and the woods:

  • 8 tires,
  • 40 bags of recyclables,
  • 35 bags of trash,
  • 100 lb of concrete rubble,
  • 30 feet of gutter,
  • a pallet, a cooler, a hubcap,
  • auto parts and other large pieces of debris!
Again, thanks to everyone:
to the Girl Scout troop,
to all the families and individuals from nearby and farther away that came to help at this site,
to the Anacostia Watershed Society (AWS) for supplying gloves and bags, volunteer signups and driving directions on their web site,
and to Tom Taylor of BCWWG for organizing the cleanup and obtaining the materials from AWS.
