--CANCELED-- Plymouth Twp: Susq. River & Warrior Trail Cleanup

Saturday, May 12, 2018 - 9:30am - 1:00pm

******This cleanup has been  cancelled. Thank you to all who have expressed interest in volunteering at the cleanup! The property owner has decided to address the trash dumping on their own terms and our assistance is not presently required along this section of the river. We appreciate your interest and support and will be back for a new cleanup project in the future!*********

Keep in touch for future volunteer opportunities in Northeastern PA.
