about south river federation

We had almost 60 people join us for Project Clean Stream at 4 locations around the Church Creek Watershed, the South River's most polluted creek on Saturday April 2nd. It was a wet and gray day, but our volunteers' enthusiasm made it feel sunny! In total we pulled out a large rectangular dumpster load of trash from the creek! We had one group cleaning up behind Home Depot and Bertucci's a Forest Plaza. They pulled out lots of litter and even a couch! We had 2 teams working behind Annapolis Harbour Center, where we were in the process of completed our latest large in-stream restoration project. One focused on "Mount Trashmore", a huge stock pile of recyclables that a someone had collected for years and abandoned. The other team, tackled some invasive plants that were choking out native trees that provide important wildlife benefits. 

Thank you to the 20 midshipmen who came out to our Bywater location, where we will be starting a restoration project in the next few months. They pulled out tires and other larger trash items from a hard to access location. Finally, Annapolis Rowing Club helped us partially clean up a "trash explosion" on Crab Creek when a trash collection fence behind a public housing project broke apart in a spring storm.
