Creek Clean Up with Town of Carrboro

Post Date:02/19/2020 12:06 PM

CREEK CLEANUPOn Saturday, March 7, from 1 to 4 p.m., the Chapel Hill Stormwater is teaming up with the Town of Carrboro to clean up a section of the Morgan Creek watershed. Volunteers are invited to pick up litter along the stream next to the Roberson Place pathway on the border of Chapel Hill and Carrboro. Every time it rains, litter from both towns washes down into this unnamed stream, impacting the critters who live there and clogging the stormwater pipes downstream.

All members of the family are encouraged to attend! Sign up today at

What We Will Do

Volunteers will sign in and complete a liability waiver form. After a safety briefing, Stormwater staff will hand out supplies. We will comb through the stream next to the Roberson Place bike path as a group, filling up trash bags as we go.

Where to Meet

The gravel parking lot at South Green Development, 501 South Greensboro St., Carrboro.

What Staff Will Provide

Gloves, trash bags, trash grabbers, first-aid kits, and water bottle refill station.

What to Bring

Volunteers are required to wear close-toed shoes. We might get dirty, so waterproof boots, long pants, and long-sleeved shirts are recommended. A water refill station will be provided, so consider bringing a water bottle.
