(WBNG) — For the 19th year in a row, the Tioga County Water Quality Coordinating Committee is giving you the chance to help clean up the environment.
Monday through Saturday May 18, they’ll be holding their stream clean-up event.
You can select any stream you want within Tioga County to help clean up.
Officials say it’s important to get involved because this is the only time of year the county’s 1,100 miles of stream are cleaned up.
“Our streams are a great natural resource in the county for recreation and for use and tourism,” says Wendy Walsh, Tioga County Soil and Water Conservation District Manager. “So I think it provides an opportunity for us to get those cleaned up and get people out and utilizing those water ways.”
All you need to do is register with the Tioga County Soil and Water Conservation District to volunteer.
