May 18th, Saturday,the Conodoguinet Creek Cleanup. 8:45- 12:00 noon.

The Conodoguinet Creek Watershed Association, Camp Hill Environmental Club, Mechanicsburg Area Environmental Clubs, and Green C.A.U.S.E. will be hosting the first cleanup of 2013.

Before 8:45, we will all park our vehicles, assemble, and enter the Creek at the extreme end ofLamp   Post LaneinHampdenTownship(by the old Treatment Plant/Pumping Station).

We will clean upstream and exit the Creek before the dam at Lamp Post Lane/Orr’sBridge Road(.7 of a mile). Upon completetion, or if you have to leave early, you will be driven back to your vehicle.

Directions: From the Carlisle Pike, head North (DOWNHILL) on Orrs Bridge Road in Hampden Township. After crossing the creek, take a right on to Lampost Lane. Follow it to the end.

Please dress according to the weather forecast  for the morning. Wear old sneakers or creek shoes. I recommend that you wear longer padded socks that will make it less likely that you will feel every grain of sediment that enters your shoe. No sandals or shoes that are open in the back. Baseball caps and/or sun glasses work well.

If the water depth, turbidity, or the weather, do not allow us to clean the Creek safely, I will email you, at the latest by noon of the day before the cleanup to inform you.

If that should happen, we will reschedule the cleaning of the same stretch on the 3rd Saturday of the following month. Same time, same station.

We will continue working our way upstream, starting where we got out “the last time”.

I will send you an email every month with all of the info, to keep us all “on the same page”.

Please put the following dates on your calendar.
