25th Anniversary of the Clear Creek Cleanup
This February 11 marks the 25th anniversary of the Clear Creek Cleanup. The first Cleanup was held in 1998, and two years later the Clear Creek Environmental Foundation (CCEF) was formed. The goal of CCEF is to preserve, protect, and enhance Clear Creek and Clear Lake, and the annual cleanup event plays an important role in fulfilling this mission. Every year, people of all ages come together to remove thousands of pounds of trash from the waterway, helping preserve the health and beauty of the creek.
2023 Clear Creek Cleanup Event Details
This year’s Clear Creek Cleanup event will be held on Saturday, February 11 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Individuals and groups will meet at the League City Boat Ramp, located under the FM 270/Egret Bay Boulevard Bridge over Clear Creek (between FM 518 and Nasa Road 1).
Starting at 8 a.m., boat captains will take volunteers and drop them off at select locations where they will collect trash in bags provided by CCEF. Volunteers will be picked up and brought back to the League City Boat Ramp between noon and 1 p.m. Trash collected on barges will be unloaded by volunteers and placed in trash bins at the Boat Ramp location.
What to Bring
Volunteers should be prepared for cold weather and wear layered clothing. It’s always colder on the water. Consider the wind chill while traveling on the water as well. Work gloves and work boots/rubber boots are recommended. Be prepared to get muddy. Every boat will have life jackets, drinking water, and first aid kits. People who would like to volunteer with their boats are also welcome.
How to Get Involved
This event needs volunteers for it to be a success. Anyone interested in volunteering can contact Mike Stone by phone at (281) 830-3419 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, just show up and be ready to help.
