18th Bald Eagle Creek Cleanup slated for September 7

Join Clinton County CleanScapes, Sunken Treasure Scuba Center divers, Lock Haven University students and other community members for the 18th Bald Eagle Creek tire removal event on September 7th.

The goal is to remove 40 or more tires from the creek!

There are many ways people can get involved, and all ages are welcome!

  • Collect litter and tires from Bald Eagle Creek. Teams will wade into Bald Eagle Creek and assist scuba divers and boat captains. First time? No worries. All teams are led by a CleanScapes Safety Captain.
  • Provide support on land. These volunteers assist the waders and help load the dumpsters with debris brought on land.
  • Truck/trailer shuttle drivers are always welcome! Do you have a pickup truck or trailer? Consider bringing it along to help shuttle collected tires to the dumpster. Volunteers will load and unload the truck/trailer. Note: the truck/trailer will get muddy!
  • Document the day! Not physically able or interested in removing the tires? Consider helping us document the activities by photographing the event and sharing them with us later!

The cleanup event will begin at 9:30 a.m.
