Volunteers Needed for Nine Mile Run Stream Sweep Sept. 22

The effort will remove trash and debris from the stream, beginning in Frick Park, from 9 a.m. to noon.

Every time it rains, trash and debris from the upper watershed washes into Nine Mile Run.

To help keep the stream clean and beautiful, the Nine Mile Run Watershed Association will conduct a stream sweep from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 22.

Volunteers will meet at the Fern Hollow parking lot at the bottom of Lancaster Avenue in Frick Park. The association will provide breakfast, gloves, safety vests and trash bags, but volunteers should wear long pants and sturdy boots or closed-toe shoes.
