Stream Clean-up day
Lititz Run Watershed Alliance (LRWA) will be conducting Stream Clean-up day on March 16 from 8 to 11 a.m. Volunteers will be cleaning the entire stretch of Lititz Run.
Last year’s event netted .44 tons of trash, which is down considerably from 2002 when the LRWA collected two tons of trash in its first year of the clean-up.
"We are still finding far too many plastic bags, cans, bottles, some furniture," said Luba Irwin of Warwick Township.
In 2009, the Lititz Run was classified as a "cold water fishery" which means that the stream is healthier and that trout are reproducing.
"Last year we had between 150 and 200 volunteers — from very young to seasoned helpers," added Irwin.
Anyone who would care to participate is asked to call 626-8900 or e-mail email@example.com for more information. Groups from work, school or other organizations are encouraged to form teams to help with the clean-up.
Participants should wear appropriate shoes and clothing. Volunteers may also bring shovels or trowels if available. Groups will be directed to a particular location for clean-up or planting. Gloves and refreshments will be provided. More STREAM CLEAN, page A15
