Dundalk Clean up to be Held on Bear Creek

Clean Bread and Cheese Creek will host a fall clean up for the historic Bear Creek shoreline on Saturday, Sept. 25.

Registration will be located next to Battle Monument School, 7801 East Collingham Drive in Dundalk.

Registration tents and the event banners will be on display.

Registration will open at 8 a.m. , and the cleanup will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Any safety protocols in place by Maryland/Baltimore County will be enforced at the time of the event.

When volunteers arrive at registration they will immediately be giving supplies and sent to a designated area to begin cleaning up. Individually packaged snacks will be available.

­”We run our cleanups as a family event with plenty of ways for volunteers to participate. We welcome every type of person of every ability level to contribute and assist with the cleanup,” said a statement from Clean Bread and Cheese Creek.

“Though it is true we will need people to dig out shopping carts and haul trash to the dumpsters, we need people to run water, food, tools, and trash bags (both empty and full) to individuals in the creek. People to sort recyclables from the debris removed.

“People will be needed to help at registration, setup food and snacks as well as many other less strenuous activities. We are also authorized to sign-off on Community Service and Service Learning Hours for students.

“The more people we have, the easier the work will be for everyone. We will provide lunch and snacks as well as gloves.

“A limited number of tools are available for sign-out, but suggest bringing your own if you have them.”

The historic shoreline of Bear Creek and Chalesmont Park  is where both the British and American set up defensive positions during the War of 1812, Battle of North Point.
