04/04/2019 - With Earth Day coming up on April 22, this is the time to shower a little love on your favorite stream.
The Catskill Watershed Corporation (CWC) provides supplies to groups and individuals who clean litter and other debris from streambanks in the Catskill-Delaware Watershed and dispose of it properly.
Heavy duty trash bags, gloves and tokens of appreciation are available to individuals, youth and school groups, church organizations, civic and business associations, neighborhood groups and teams of friends who volunteer to scour streambanks and riversides for trash.
You may also wish to participate in the 26th Annual National River Cleanup effort this spring. To register your cleanup activity, participate in a photo contest, and to get more information, visit www.americanrivers.org and click on the "Make an Impact" tab to "Take Action."
The CWC is a non-profit, Local Development Corporation responsible for several environmental protection, economic development and education programs in the New York City Watershed West of the Hudson River. www.cwconline.org.
