Description:

Allegheny Aquatic Alliance is holding the 5th Annual Connoquenessing Creek Cleanup on August 27 & September 10, 2016. This creek was rated the 2nd most polluted waterway in America in 2000 and has remained fairly unchanged until we began this cleanup mission in 2012. We have successfully removed over 200,000 pounds of garbage, including over 2,000 tires in just 30 miles! We still have 20 more miles to go. This year we are focusing on a 12 mile stretch, starting in Harmony and ending in Fombell. This is the first cleanup in both Butler and Beaver Counties. With your help we will clean up this precious waterway from its current deplorable state! The more volunteers we have the more garbage we can remove! This major cleanup project requires so much support from the community for its continued success. Our needs include many, many volunteers, trucks, non-motorized Boats, refreshments, food, shovels, winches, rope, chains, leather work gloves, small tractors, good creek accesses, hip waders, etc. All volunteers will be provided with a t-shirt, lunch, and be invited to the celebration party with food, drink, and live music on September 24, 2016 at the Center of Harmony. Join Us!
