Earth Day may be on April 22nd, but one day is not enough time to celebrate all the great things about the South River! If you are looking for a way to give back to your community or for something to do with the whole family, you don't want to miss Project Clean Stream or the South River Snapshot!
Saturday, April 14th 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join the entire Chesapeake Bay watershed on the morning of April 14th to clean up a local stream! The South River Federation will be hosting a local cleanup along Church Creek at Annapolis Harbour Center at 2512 A Solomons Island Road in Annapolis. Last year, over 4,000 volunteers throughout the entire Bay region picked up 150,000 pounds of trash at 165 different sites. Join the Federation’s Project Clean Stream team this spring and let’s help make this year even better than last year! Please email Jennifer at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP.
Saturday, April 21st 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
Have you ever wanted to get hands on experience monitoring water quality? Here is your chance to get the whole family involved! The Federation will be holding our Annual Snapshot on April 21st to conduct water quality tests to assess the Rivers' health. Although the data represents just a “snapshot” in time, collecting the data from over 40 sites around the River simultaneously, and doing it at about the same time each year, gives a good general barometer of the relative health of our streams and creeks. Volunteers are required to attend one training session prior to the Snapshot. The trainings are on 4/15 at 3:00 p.m. or 4/19 at 6:00 p.m. at the Londontowne Community Hall located at 170 Mayo Road in Edgewater. Please email Jennifer at email@example.com to RSVP.
After the Snapshot, head over to the Earth Day at ClockTower Place on April 21st. This great event has something for everyone! Get a close up view of birds of prey, enjoy wine tasting, or get your face painted. You can even chow down on a delicious burger by My Butcher & More with a portion of the proceeds going to the South River Federation. The Federation will be there so make sure you stop by and see us!
