Big Walnut Nature Club invites you to the Galena Clean Sweep – News Release

In honor of Earth Day, the Big Walnut Nature Club invites you to the Galena Clean Sweep on Saturday, April 21.  Volunteers are needed and should meet at 9 a.m. at the Area N trailhead, near 45 S. Walnut St. in Galena. Volunteers will be given trash bags and grabbers courtesy of the Delaware General Health District’s Keep Delaware County Beautiful program.  Wear appropriate clothes, boots, and gloves for being in woodsy, damp areas.

According to Big Walnut Nature Club Clean Sweep Coordinator Craig Ebersold, improving habitat is key to helping wildlife thrive in the area.  “Our group is focusing on species of special interest such as the Eagles, Osprey, Prothonotary Warblers, and Chimney Swifts but we are also interested in improving the environment for the benefit of all our wildlife,” Ebersold said.  “A lot of trash ends up in our waterways coming down Little Walnut and Big Walnut creeks and on Hoover Reservoir and we get out at least twice a year to clean it up.  We welcome everyone to come out and help us clean up the area so we can all enjoy the great natural resources Galena has to offer.”
