CENTRAL POINT, Ore.- Today the Bear Creek Stewardship Day hosted a clean up event along the Bear Creek Greenway in celebration of Earth Day. The Bear Creek Stewards and other local groups and businesses, organized volunteers to participate in Bear Creek Stewardship Day to help remove litter and debris along Bear Creek and the Bear Creek Greenway from Central Point to Ashland.
The event had eight check-in locations from Central Point to Ashland. The check-in locations had information about the clean-up efforts and provided coffee, juice, and snacks for the volunteers. Some of the clean up efforts were mulching the land, removing dead plants to replace them with new native plants and blackberry grubbing.
Bear Creek Stewardship holds clean up events twice a year along the Bear Creek Greenway. To sign up for their next event or to stay informed on how you can keep the Greenway clean, click here.
