Join Cathance River Education Alliance and Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust for an Earth Day Clean Up!  This year, we’re focusing on areas near our offices at Brunswick Landing that are within the Mare Brook watershed (which occupies a large area of Brunswick). Join us as we don garbage bags and gloves for our mission to clean up lightly traveled (yet sadly, not devoid of trash) roadsides and other areas this Earth Day!

We’ll stage our effort from the deck next to our office, then send people out to nearby areas (some walkable, some a short drive or bike ride) where a team leader will direct you. You can de-litter for as long as you wish/are able, then you’ll bring the trash back to our staging area. We encourage people to bring gloves if you have them, but we will have nitrile gloves (including child-sized) on hand. If you have large animal feed or other bags that can be repurposed as trash bags, please bring them! We love re-use!

Location: 179 Neptune Dr. – Brunswick Landing

Parking: large lot across the street from our office address above.

Time: 9:30am – 11:30am

Come Prepared! Bring re-usable garden gloves (we’ll have nitrile gloves on hand). Wear sturdy shoes the ground will be muddy, and clothing you don’t mind searching for trash in! Trash bags will be provided.

All ages welcome – children must be supervised by an adult caregiver.

Registration is requested! Register below and be sure to list the number of people in your group. If we need to reschedule due to weather or send additional details about the event this will be communicated via email to registered groups/participants.

Site Leaders Wanted – Bring your group of friends and clean up your own site together! Note in your registration if you’d like to be a site leader for our clean up missions.

Let’s get microplastics and waste out of natural areas, out of streams, and away from nature’s creatures. Families and children welcome! Give the children in your life a chance to contribute to their community and perhaps build some good habits around how to be a good caretaker of the natural world.

We’ll have light refreshments on hand to thank you for your efforts when you’re done!

We have Free CREA t-shirts to give to the first 20 volunteers who sign-up, so save your spot today!
