Oregon Pike Stream-Clean-Up Event • Saturday, October 22nd • 10 am - 12 pm
The Manheim Township Sustainability Advisory Committee is looking for volunteers for an Oregon Pike highway and stream clean-up on Saturday, Oct. 22, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. Because this location is an area of heavy traffic, volunteers must be age 14 or older and all minors must be accompanied by an adult. This is a rain or shine event. The clean-up efforts are along Oregon Pike from the Manheim Township Municipal Compost Facility to the intersection with Creek Road to the north, as well as along an unnamed tributary of the Conestoga River. Volunteers will work to clean up trash to help rid the area of materials that could end up in the nearby stream polluting the water that flows into the Conestoga River and ends up in the Chesapeake Bay.
Participants should bring a water bottle, wear closed-toed shoes, long pants and shirts, and know there may be contact with heavy brush and/or ticks, poison ivy, and wet areas. Volunteers should meet at the underpass intersection of Oregon Pike, Jake Landis Road, and Route 222. There is some parking and volunteers should park as far on the shoulder as possible.
To volunteer, or for more information, please contact Ryan Dodson at email@example.com or call 717-475-0195.
