Upcoming Events from Allegheny Aquatic Alliance
Calling All Volunteers & Supporters!
Allegheny Aquatic Alliance is holding the 7th Annual Connoquenessing Creek Cleanup on August 18 & September 8, 2018. This creek was rated the 2nd most polluted waterway in America in 2000 and has remained fairly unchanged until we began this cleanup mission in 2012. We have successfully removed over 360,000 pounds of garbage, including over 4,000 tires in just 40 miles! This year marks our final stretch of the initial cleanup project. The cleanup stretch is 10 miles through Ellwood City, ending at Rock Point. With your help, we will clean up this precious waterway from its current deplorable state! The more volunteers we have the more garbage we can remove! This major cleanup project requires so much support from the community for its continued success. Our needs include many, many volunteers, trucks, non-motorized Boats, refreshments, food, shovels, winches, rope, chains, leather work gloves, small tractors, good creek accesses, hip waders, etc. All volunteers will be provided with a t-shirt, lunch, and be invited to the celebration party with food, drink, and live music. Join Us!
