The Conewango Creek Watershed Association (CCWA) is organizing the 2nd annual Conewango Creek Clean-Up. Because of the success last year, the area that is being covered is doubling in size from the previous year.
This year’s volunteers will be cleaning all the way from the Marden E. Cobb Waterway Trail in Frewsburg, N.Y. to Point Park in Warren.
On Sept. 11, registration will begin at 8 a.m. at Larimer Park in Russell. In order be more efficient, people will be assigned certain areas to clean, and shuttling will be available to take people to their assigned areas. By 9 a.m., the clean-up will begin. Life vests, paddles, and canoes will be provided for all volunteers. Trash drop off points are available for better convenience and safety. The clean-up will be ending at approximately 1 p.m., and a free lunch will be offered for any volunteer who is interested. The lunch will be held at Larimer Park around 2 p.m.
