ASHLAND, Ore. — The Bear Creek Greenway is a frequent destination for clean-up efforts from city governments and volunteers between Central Point and Ashland, but it isn't every day that it sees a coordinated in each city, all on the same day. On Saturday, that's precisely what a coalition of community organizations have in mind.

The Bear Creek Stewardship Day clean-up event takes place throughout the morning of September 28. It begins at 9 a.m. and runs until 12 p.m., with check-in starting at 8:30 a.m.

The main thrust of activities will be picking up litter and debris along Bear Creek and along the Greenway from Central Point to Ashland. Those looking for an alternative way to help out can participate in blackberry removal at Ashland Creek Park or planting at Colver Road Park in Phoenix and Wagner Park in Talent.

Volunteers are encouraged to register for the event in advance at the Bear Creek Stewards website, but walk-ups will be accepted on the day of the event at any of the check-in locations. There are eleven different check-in locations for volunteers to sign up, get clean-up materials (trash bags, trash pickers, and gloves), find out more information, or pick up some coffee, juice, or snacks.

The clean-up event is supported by statewide sponsor SOLVE, as well as local sponsors the Ashland Food Co-op, Dutch Bros, Human Bean, Medford Food Co-op, Medford REI, and Starbucks. Each city government and multiple companies and nonprofit organizations have helped to organize volunteers from local businesses, schools, churches, and service groups.

Check-in locations for volunteers are listed below:

  • Southern Oregon RV/Expo Center and Pine Street/Penninger Road in Central Point
  • McAndrews Road in Medford, adjacent to the Greenway
  • Hawthorne Park in Medford, adjacent to the Greenway
  • Bear Creek Park/Alba Drive, close to the Greenway near Barnett Road
  • Coyote Trails Nature Center, in south Medford
  • Colver Road Park in Phoenix
  • Lynn Newbry Park and Wagner Park in Talent
  • Wranglers Arena and Ashland Creek Park in Ashland
