Project Clean Stream

The next Project Clean Stream will be held on Saturday, April 5, 2014 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. 

 

Begun in the mid-1970s as the Jones Falls Watershed Cleanup, Project Clean Stream is an annual regional stream clean up engaging more than 1,000 Marylanders in cleaning up their watersheds. The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay runs the event, and Irvine remains an active partner in both the planning and implementation of the event.

Here’s how the event works:

  1. Irvine and other partner organizations determine clean-up locations and recruit Site Captains to help lead the clean up effort.
  2. Site Captains pick up the clean up supplies (provided) at a meeting (one is held here at Irvine 2 weeks prior Project Clean Stream).
  3. Site Captains manage their site’s volunteers for the day.
  4. Site Captains send the cleanup results (# of volunteers, pounds of trash cleaned, etc.) to the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay.
