Have you ever noticed the disgusting litter on our roadways? Other than being an eye sore, does it really matter if our streets are clean from plastic bottles and caps, cigarette butts, aluminum cans, or other trash?
Think about it. If there is a heavy rain in a town or city, the water (and the litter it carries) flows down to the nearest storm drain, often winding-up in a nearby stream. Eventually, the stream runs into a larger body of water, and could eventually end up connecting with the Chesapeake Bay. Thus, if we keep our roadways clean from trash, our water bodies will be healthier.
Join us this Saturday morning, April 8, 2023 as we clean up a section of E. Wayne Avenue in Silver Spring, Maryland. All needed equipment (gloves, plastic bags, "pic sticks", & other) will be provided as we make E. Wayne Ave, from Garland Ave to Sligo Creek Parkway, look its best.
