Environmentalists seek help with creek cleanup GLEN BURNIE


Volunteers who don't mind getting wet and dirty can help haul debris from a Sawmill Creek tributary during a three-hour cleanup Saturday morning.

"We're hoping to have this as a first in a series of cleanups in that area," said Jonathan Pearson, a community organizer with Maryland Save Our Streams, a non-profit environmental group.

Volunteers will meet at 9 a.m. on Penrod Court in the Glen Burnie Industrial Park.

About 30 people have signed up for the three-hour task. But the year-old Sawmill Creek Recovery Team, composed largely of people who live in the creek's watershed, hopes to have another 30 volunteers, Mr. Pearson said.

Volunteers should wear sturdy shoes and gloves. They can register in advance with Mr. Pearson at 969-0084.
