This Spring’s Sweep the Creek will be held on Saturday, April 22, from 9-11am and on Sunday, April 23, from
1-3pm. Please click the link below to view the meeting sites for each participating section.

We welcome individuals, groups, families, and students—students can receive service-learning credit for their work (we provide the forms and signatures). We provide gloves, bags, water, and guidance on what help is most needed in each section (some sections may also request help with removing invasive plants). All you need to bring is your community spirit—and a willingness to get a little wet and dirty!

There is no need to sign up ahead of time, but if you will be bringing a group or have questions, it is best to contact the Sweep Coordinator ahead of time.

We look forward to sharing the honor of stewardship with you during this Spring’s Sweep the Creek, and thank you in advance for your partnership in this wonderful event.

Patton Stephens, Sweep the Creek Coordinator
