Volunteers participants are needed for the 5th annual Geronimo/Alligator Creeks Clean Up Event scheduled for Saturday, April 8th from 9:00 a.m. to noon.
“This is a fun time to get out in the community and make a difference,”
New Braunfels Watershed Program Manager Mark Enders. “Everyone that
participates will be provided with clean up supplies, and those that register
by March 24th will receive a special event t-shirt and breakfast
When registering on-line, volunteers can select from one of three start locations:
New Braunfels Airport, Parker Lumber in Seguin, or Navarro High School.
“Simply go to http://geronimocreek.org
to sign up and get more information,” Enders said. “It’s also a great way
to get community service hours for a school or a civic group.”
Volunteers should dress appropriate for the weather, since they will be outside
for an hour or more. Long pants, a hat, sunscreen and closed-toe shoes are
recommended. They are encouraged to bring their own gloves, pick up tool, rake,
walking stick, and bug spray, if they have them.
The event is facilitated by the Geronimo and Alligator Creeks Watershed
Partnership, which is funded through a federal Clean Water Act Nonpoint Source
Grant administered by the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board from
the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. It is sponsored by the City of
New Braunfels, Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority, Guadalupe County Groundwater
Conservation District, KWED, the Alamo Group, Becker’s Feed & Fertilizer,
Crossroad Veterinary Hospital, Ehlers’ Tree Farm, Parker’s Building Supply,
Planet Fitness, Progressive Waste Solutions and Thrivent Financial.
