Project Clean Stream – Project WOW!

I’m so proud of our team at Koons Easton Toyota!  On Saturday, April 2, 2011, employees and family members pitched in to help Project Clean Stream.  This is an annual stream and shoreline clean up coordinated by the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay and partnering watershed organizations.

There were 11 volunteers: co-workers, families and friends turned out at the site in Unionville to clean up and remove 23 bags of trash and debris from streams and wooded areas throughout the town. Koons Easton Toyota volunteers included Theresa Griffin, Jill Harrison, Kevin Deshields, Terry Carney, and Liz Disimone.

This is the eighth year the Alliance, their partners and sponsors have organized cleanups for the Chesapeake Bay area through Project Clean Stream. In 2010 more than 3600 volunteers helped to remove over 118,000 pounds of trash.  This year, clean up was performed at even more sites and will continue on April 9th and 16th.

Keeping our streams clean is vital to protecting the Chesapeake Bay –  home to thousands of plants, fish, waterfowl – and Maryland’s own Blue Crab.  To get involved or for more information on Project Clean Stream click here.

Chat soon.
