Join CleanScapes on October 6 for Piatt Township clean-up

CleanScapes will hold a forest beautification event in Piatt Township, Lycoming County, on Saturday, October 6, 2018 – and you can participate!

After being treated to a doughnut breakfast, volunteers will be tasked with removing litter and tires from the forested hillside adjacent to Stewart Run Creek.

The clean-up will begin about 9:30 a.m.  and will last until about 1 p.m.  The goal for this clean-up is to remove 75+ tires and bag 2 tons of litter.

Volunteers will be treated to Pizza 2 Go and refreshments following the event.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Volunteers can participate as land support by collecting trash and tires or by helping to load the dumpsters. Volunteers are also invited to take short videos or photos of the volunteers in action to submit to CleanScapes later.

TIPS FOR VOLUNTEERS

The terrain is mixed-flat and moderate-to-steeply sloped. Long-sleeved shirts, pants, hats and jackets are recommended for volunteers.  Closed toed shoes are mandatory.

CleanScapes provides volunteers with tick/bug repellent, gloves, and trash bags.
