Stream cleaning frenzy on tap Saturday

Spring cleaning season is upon us, and Saturday there'll be a whole lotta cleaning goin' on along water ways around B'more.

Project Clean Stream, the annual stream and shoreline cleanup campaign coordinated by the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, kicks into high gear tomorrow (4/14).  There are dozens of cleanups scheduled in the Baltimore area and dozens more around Maryland. 

Last year, more than 5,000 volunteers hauled roughly 300,000 pounds of trash and debris from streams and woods at more than 220 sites across the bay watershed. They're shooting to top that this year if they can.

Most of the cleanups ask just a few hours' time. What better way to learn firsthand about your local stream, get a little fresh air and spend some quality time with your neighbors? And if you just can't make one tomorrow, there are some planned through the rest of April.
