SWEP Three Rivers Chapter Announces First Public Service Event – Volunteers Requested!

Friday, April 13, 2018 1:52 AM | Anonymous

Please join us to celebrate Earth Day on Saturday, April 21, 2018 for a stream cleanup of Saw Mill Run – no special skills required!

The Society of Women Professionals (SWEP) Three Rivers Chapter is pleased to partner with Saw Mill Run Watershed Association for a stream clean up in celebration of Earth Day - Saturday April 21 at 9:00 am in Castle Shannon Borough. Overall, the Saw Mill Run Watershed is approximately 19 square miles, including 12 separate municipalities and 14 City of Pittsburgh neighborhoods. The watershed is identified by its’ busy Route 51 Saw Mill Run Blvd highway corridor, the valley’s sleep slopes, and high density of impervious areas from decades of urban development. These qualities also cause frequent flooding, trash accumulation, and have a negative impact on the water quality of the stream.

While most of the impacts are man-made, we can also be a part of the solution. Have you ever noticed the litter that is piling up in your local Rivers or streams? It takes away from the beauty and safety of our waterways. Further, rivers and streams provide 65% of our nation’s drinking water. Well you can do something about it by joining us for a cleanup effort with Saw Mill Run Watershed. You, your friends and others in our community can help make the stream safer, healthier and cleaner.

Please help is help our environment – rain or shine – and register today!

Arrive early for coffee and bagels. Lunch will be provided by supporting local businesses
