This fall’s Sweep the Creek will be held on Saturday, September 29, from 9-11am. and Sunday, September 30, from 1-3pm. Please click the link below to view the meeting sites for each participating section.

We are also happy to announce that our Sweep the Creek will again this year be part of the larger “National Public Lands Day,” the nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands Americans enjoy. In the past, as many as 150,000 volunteers worked together on this day throughout the country on behalf of our natural resources.

We welcome individuals, groups, families, and students—students can receive service-learning credit for their work (we provide the forms and signatures). We also provide gloves, bags, water, and guidance on what help is most needed in each section (some sections may also request help with removing invasive plants). All you need to bring is your community spirit—and a willingness to get a little wet and dirty!

There is no need to sign up ahead of time, but if you will be bringing a group or have questions, it is best to contact the Sweep Coordinator ahead of time.

We look forward to sharing the honor of stewardship with you during this fall’s Sweep the Creek, and thank you in advance for your partnership in this wonderful event.
