The City of St. Peters continues to seek volunteers to help during Clean Stream Day on the morning of Saturday, Oct. 8, 2011. With the registration deadline of Sept. 30 looming, plenty of spots are still open to help during this annual event to clean trash from St. Peters’ streams.
Trash can harm habitat and wildlife, plus cause creek bank erosion and possibly flooding. The City of St. Peters hosts Clean Stream Day for families, organizations and individuals wanting to contribute to healthier streams and a better community.
On Clean Stream Day, volunteers will check in at St. Peters City Hall at 8 a.m. and receive trash bags and gloves as well as enjoy free doughnuts, coffee and juice. Please note that transportation is not provided to creek segments. After cleaning streams, volunteers return to City Hall at 11:30 a.m. for a free hot dog lunch, cooked and served by the St. Charles County Community Emergency Response Team. Volunteers also will receive a free T-shirt provided by the Missouri Department of Conservation Stream Team.
St. Peters City Hall is located at St. Peters Centre Boulevard and Mexico Road.
