Volunteers Sought for Geronimo/Alligator Creeks Clean Up Event

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,”

said 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 refreshments.”

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.
