CleanScapes is keeping busy this fall while working on two special projects.
We’re planning to help clean up more of the West Branch during the river drawdown while repairs are being made to the Tidlow Dam. We’re also preparing our annual newsletter — and have new plans in place for distribution.
Tidlow Dam Breach, Lock Haven
To take full advantage of the Tidlow Dam breach and after the water recedes, CleanScapes, in partnership with Sunken Treasure Scuba Center, the Wayne Township Landfill and the City of Lock Haven, will assist in removing any visible tires and trash.
After we formulate a safe method to extract the items, we may seek our veteran CleanScapers for help. We’ll send out an email and post the opportunity here and on Facebook. And as always, if you help that day and find something really cool and legal to own, it’s your treasure to keep!
CleanScapes Annual Newsletter
Each December we publish our annual newsletter, and in January it will be posted on this site. The 2019 edition will focus on cleanup challenges, accomplishments, our ongoing Keystone Central School District senior student mentoring project, cash for cans vending machine proposal, PennDOT’s recent resolution and how it may affect the local Adopt-A-Highway Program, and our annual list acknowledging 2019 event sponsors.
And as we look forward to planning 2020 events this winter, we want you to know our 2019-2020 fiscal year is about to begin on October 1. We have and will continue to invest every dollar given locally – into community cleanup projects that obtain immediate and long-term results. Look for the Membership and Sponsorship form posted on this site and enclosed in the 2019 newsletter.
Thank you again for championing our mission and volunteers,
