Small groups of volunteers will walk through designated sections of the creek along the banks and pick up trash. No time limit is required; all help is appreciated. Volunteers are requested to register in advance and check in at the Forker Building parking lot.

In recognition of National Rivers Month, Iowa State's Live Green! initiative and Keep Iowa State Beautiful are teaming up with Facilities Planning and Management to give College Creek a good cleaning.

Volunteers should dress for the weather and wear closed-toe shoes. Supplies (bug repellent, sunscreen, gloves and bags and trash grabbers) will be provided; however volunteers are welcome to bring their own supplies as well. Refreshments will be provided for all volunteers.

Registration Requested (

Volunteers can check in starting at 9:30am in the Forker Building Parking Lot (Lot #50A). Volunteers can also arrive at any time between 10am and 2pm to volunteer.
