Community Litter Sweep
Saturday, March 19, 9-11 a.m.
Meet at Ting Park to join in a community litter sweep cosponsored by the Town of Holly Springs and Wake County. A town van will be available to transport groups of volunteers to and from other collection sites in town. Younger volunteers accompanied by adults are invited to collect litter around the park itself. Vests, bags and other supplies will be provided. Closed-toe shoes are recommended.
Walk or run 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) along a waterway near you anytime during Creek Week. While you’re out, consider collecting litter you see along the way. Take a photo showing you and the litter you collected, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Stormwater 5K” as the subject. The first 15 people who submit photos will receive a Stormwater water bottle to help reduce plastic waste. We’ll also post the photos to social media to help raise awareness about Creek Week.
