Calling All Volunteers & Supporters!














The 8th Annual Connoquenessing Creek Cleanup dates have been scheduled! Please help us restore this important waterway back to its beautiful, natural state by removing the physical garbage that consumes it. So far we have removed over 418,000 pounds of garbage, including 4,455 tires from all 50 mile waterway! This has become an ongoing cleanup project since every year flooding carries an enormous amount of new litter and pollution into the creek. Therefore, maintenance cleanups must continue for the success of this project. This year we will be returning to the stretch we cleaned in 2012 & 2013 in Butler County. The 20-mile section begins in the City of Butler and ends in Zelienople. Join us in doing a good thing for the environment and community while feeling good and meeting new friends!
