posted Tuesday, August 13, 2019

The Black River Action Team welcomes volunteers of all ages to lend a hand for the 20th Annual RiverSweep cleanup of the bed and banks of the Black River. Meet at the HQ table by the footbridge in the Springfield Shopping Plaza (2 Chester Road), sign in and pick a spot to clean. Grab trash bags and work gloves, fill your water bottle head out to see what you can find. Bring your junk back to HQ by 11 AM to help us sort and tally the "treasures," clean up and play a little "Junk Jam" while enjoying lunch. Don't forget to grab some chips donated by Deep River Snacks and your free BRAT tee shirt, as your 'thank you' for your time and effort.
