Join us as we clean the Miller Run tributary that runs behind Route 40 in Catonsville. We will be pulling litter and debris out of the stream and its surrounding land to improve the beauty and health of this natural environment. We will be conducting this cleanup in partnership with the UMBC Alumni Association.
Wear close-toed shoes (rainboots are best so you can cross areas of shallow water!), long pants and sleeves and bring gloves if you have them. Stay tuned for more details- we’ll send out more information including where to park to all registrants 36 hours ahead of the event. This area has limited parking, so carpooling will be strongly encouraged! Be sure to register using the external link to stay updated.
