Five Mile Creek APSO Clean Up July 27 in Graysville

Come join the Five Mile Creek Partnership for a summer creek clean up.

The date of this year’s event is Saturday morning, July 27, 2013 in Graysville at the passive park site off Old Highway 78 where we built the canoe put-in and Boy Scout campsite in 2009.
This year’s event will be a fairly modest one, focusing mainly on picking up trash in the creek, the canoe put-in area, the camping area, and up and down the old, abandoned highway 78 roadway. There will be  cold drinks and snack, and the  free “I HELPED CLEAN UP FIVE MILE CREEK” T-shirts provided to all volunteers. Registration would begin around 8 a.m., cleanup from 9-11 a.m. .
See the attached flyer for more information.  Five Mile 13 Flyer
