Thank you so very much for your interest in Clean Bread and Cheese Creek. We can certainly use all as many volunteers as possible of all ages and abilities and we look forward to the possibility of working with you! We are all aware of the importance the health of the Chesapeake Bay hold to all Maryland Residents. Please help clean up the historic shoreline of Bear Creek and Chalesmont Park where both the British and American set up defensive positions during the War of 1812, Battle of North Point. The British also used this location to evacuate their wounded and POWâ€™s. Charlesmont Park was also the location were the Veterans of the War of 1812 celebrated Defenderâ€™s Day for over 75 years! This event will be run in conjunction with American Rivers, Trash Free Maryland and the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay as part of their Annual Project Clean Stream Event.
Registration will be located at the intersection of Park Haven and Gray Haven Road (Near Bear Creek Elementary School), Dundalk, MD 21222. Looks for the registration tents and the â€œClean Bread and Cheese Creek Banners. Registration will open at 8:00 am, and the cleanup will run from 9:00 am â€“ 2:00 pm. We have also attached a flyer with this information on it as well.
We run our cleanups as a family event with plenty of ways for volunteers to participate. We welcome every type of person of every ability level to contribute and assist with the cleanup. Though it is true we will need people to dig out shopping carts and haul trash to the dumpsters, we need people to run water, food, tools, and trash bags (both empty and full) to individuals in the creek. People to sort recyclables from the debris removed. People will be needed to help at registration, setup food and snacks as well as many other less strenuous activities. We are also authorized to sign-off on Community Service and Service Learning Hours for students. The more people we have, the easier the work will be for everyone. We will provide lunch and snacks as well as gloves. A limited number of tools are available for sign-out, but suggest bringing your own if you have them
