Planned Activities
Volunteers needed for our Spring cleanup of the Historic Bread and Cheese Creek - Saturday April 13th! Won’t you please volunteer a little of your time from 9AM -
2PM for the Spring Bread and Cheese Creek Cleanup? For our 17th year in a row, we will be running this cleanup in conjunction with the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay's Annual Project Clean Stream Cleanup! We will be targeting the area of the stream from the Berkshire Community to North Point Road!
Volunteers of all ages and abilities are needed! Help us remove the trash before it flows into Back River, the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean! Every piece of trash removed is a small victory to be celebrated!
For Safety sake we will follow any Baltimore County's COVID19 Safety Protocols in place on the date of this cleanup.
We run our cleanups as a family event with plenty of ways for volunteers to participate. We welcome every type of person of every ability level to contribute and assist with the cleanup. Though it is true we will need people to dig out shopping carts and haul trash to the dumpsters, we need people to run water, food, tools, and trash bags (both empty and full) to individuals in the creek. People to sort recyclables from the debris removed. People will be needed to help at registration, setup food and snacks as well as many other less strenuous activities. We are also authorized to sign-off on Community Service and Service Learning Hours for students. The more people we have, the easier the work will be for everyone. We will provide and snacks as well as gloves. A limited number of tools are available for sign-out, but suggest bringing your own if you have them.
Since this cleanup covers almost four miles of stream we are always in desperate need of individuals with trucks, jeeps and ATV’s wiling to haul trash from extraction points to the dumpsters.

Registration will be at 2408 Plainfield Road, Dundalk, Maryland, 21222 and will open at 8:00AM, and we will enter the stream at 9:00AM after a brief orientation.
We are also looking for photographer/videographer volunteers to help us document our cleanup as well.
