Project Clean Stream is an annual regional stream clean up engaging more than 25,000 Marylanders in cleaning up their watersheds. Project Clean Stream was started by Irvine Nature Center in the mid-1970s (then known as the Jones Falls Watershed Cleanup). The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay has since taken over the event, with Irvine remaining on as an active partner.
Last week, volunteers from Stevenson University and the local community spent several hours picking up trash along Garrison Forest Road. Volunteers picked up over 250 lbs of trash on the 1-mile stretch that Irvine sponsors through Adopt-a-Road. We counted over 125 bottles and cans, and almost 300 cigarette butts!
Thank you to the incredible volunteers for making our watershed cleaner and safer!
