The 3rd Annual Creek Clean-up on September 6, 2008 was a tremendous success! Over 500 volunteers cleared 40+ tons of trash and debris from Churn Creek, Clover Creek and several tributaries. Electronic waste, tires, appliances and furniture were all pulled from these creeks over a 4 hour period. The invasive plant, Tamarisk, was cut and removed from upper Churn Creek, ridding the creek of this habitat altering pest. An additional 56 tons of concrete was properly disposed of or recycled as part of this community effort.
