Rock Creek Cleanup
Saturday, April 16th

Frederick, MD – April 12, 2016: The City of Frederick Sustainability Committee along with its partners, the Golden Mile Alliance, Friends of Waterford Park, and Frederick County Forestry Board, will be picking up trash along Rock Creek at the corner of Key Parkway and McCain Drive on Saturday, April 16 from 10a.m. to 2 p.m.

The volunteer crew cleaned up 1,060 pounds of trash from the creek during the 2015 event. This year, the crew will pick up trash upstream behind the old Fredericktowne Mall site as well.
Lunch will be provided thanks to generous donations. Weis Markets, Inc., a sponsor of the Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful Great American Cleanup of PA, announced that the Golden Mile Alliance was selected to receive a Weis Markets gift card to help support their efforts to beautify and clean Rock Creek during the Potomac Watershed Cleanup.

Giant Eagle is a sponsor of the Golden Mile Alliance and will also help provide lunch for volunteers at the cleanup.

If you would like to volunteer, contact Jenny Willoughby at jwilloughby@cityoffrederick.com or call 301.600.2843. Find out more on the City of Frederick Sustainability Committee Facebook page.
