Our 6th Annual Connoquenessing Creek Cleanup Results:
We are proud to report that the 6th Annual Connoquenessing Creek Cleanup was by far our most successful cleanup yet! We are well on our way to restoring this important waterway back to its beautiful, natural state by removing the physical garbage that consumes it. We removed 85,732 pounds (42.9 tons) of garbage, including 1,436 tires! 190 volunteers united together to accomplish this. Now our overall total of removed garbage is 360,857 pounds (180 tons) of garbage, including 4,051 tires from 40 miles of this 50-mile waterway!
